The Kids College is working with Junior Achievement in San Diego to bring the BizTown program to North County schools.
JA BizTown™ encourages students to learn about the free enterprise system through active participation in a simulated town. Student experiences vary from working in a bank, a television station, or a retail store, to managing personal finance such as writing checks and accounting. With a variety of hands-on activities, students realize the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a simulated economy.
This approach helps students understand their economic world and prepares them for academic learning and lifelong achievement. JA BizTown provides a new approach to learning economics, and parents are given an opportunity to actively participate as program volunteers.
For more information on BizTown and form information about volunteering please see our Information Page.
