JA Finance Park Virtual


For educators and students who are unable to make the trip to our experiential learning lab in St. Paul, Minnesota, JA Finance Park can also be accessed virtually in the classroom. There may be no better time than the present for JA to connect with our young people via technology, allowing them to gain the knowledge and skills needed to take control of their economic success.

JA Finance Park gives middle and high school students an opportunity to develop personal money management skills, acquire personal finance knowledge and prepare for financial decisions and challenges in their adult lives. JA Finance Park introduces students to personal finance and career explorations through classroom instruction complemented by a day long hands-on experience where students apply learned concepts in a life-like community. During this virtual experience, students assume family and income scenarios and visit businesses to gather information for their personal financial decision-making. They use bank services; contribute to charities; purchase housing, transportation, furnishings, food, health care, and other expenses; and make investment decisions, while working to balance their budgets.

Teachers, our FAQ document will answer many of your questions.
