Group – JA Finance Park
Volunteering at JA Finance Park
JA Finance Park teaches middle and high school students about personal money management by simulating the financial decisions and challenges they will experience in their adult lives. Students assume family and income scenarios and gather information to make financial decisions. They use bank services, contribute to charities, pay for basic living expenses and make investments, all while working to balance their budgets. Each year, approximately 1,500 students will become business owners, consumers and community citizens at JA Finance Park.
A group of 15 to 20 volunteers help students navigate JA Finance Park at each on-site simulation. Volunteers work with a small group of students to guide them in creating a balanced household budget and paying their monthly bills.
Each volunteer event is from approximately 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
1745 University Ave W, St. Paul, MN 55104 (directions)
JA provides all the training and materials you’ll need to be prepared. The first hour of each volunteer event is spent reviewing the daily schedule and specific volunteer assignments.
JA Finance Park is part of JA’s middle and high school curriculum. On a typical day, 50 to 150 students will experience JA Finance Park. They will arrive approximately one hour after volunteers arrive.
