JA BizTown Training

JA BizTown is a 10,000 square foot kid-sized city within our Maplewood headquarters. Several weeks of classroom learning culminates in a day-long visit to this fully-interactive simulated free market facility. Volunteers help students manage their assigned JA BizTown shop and advise them in making important business and personal finance decisions. Take a virtual tour of JA BizTown.
