Coming Soon: Junior Achievement BizTown

Junior Achievement's BizTown is a hands-on educational program designed to provide young students with a simulated real-world experience of running a town and its businesses. In this interactive learning environment, students take on various roles such as business owners, employees, and consumers, allowing them to develop essential skills in financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and teamwork. They operate their own businesses, manage finances, and make economic decisions, gaining practical knowledge about economics and the business world while having fun in a safe and educational setting. Junior Achievement's BizTown is a valuable program that helps prepare students for future success in the world of work and commerce.
