Imagine your fifth or sixth graders running an entire town. Imagine the young citizens rushing to the bank to deposit paychecks and opening a savings account after working a shift at local businesses. Imagine a young mayor leading town meetings and making connections with the local businesses. Imagine all the businesses calculating their revenues, costs, and profit. All of this and much more occur at JA BizTown – an experiential education program bought to you by Junior Achievement.
