A Generation Of Youth Prepared to Make Intelligent Lifelong Decisions.
JA Finance Park helps students build a foundation upon which they can make intelligent financial decisions that last a lifetime, including decisions related to income, expenses, savings, and credit.
JA Finance Park Virtual is a state-of-the-art collaboration between Dallas area school systems, businesses, educators, and volunteer mentors who come together to inspire, guide, and teach students how to be financially capable and ready to take on their futures. JA Finance Park Virtual helps students to make intelligent lifelong financial decisions, including those related to career interests, personal values, income, expenses, savings, and credit, by empowering them with the knowledge of what it really takes to successfully navigate today’s complex economy and how their decisions today can impact their future.
JA Finance Park Virtual combines a classroom curriculum taught by teachers with a high-impact virtual simulation. This knowledge serves as a foundation in personal finance education and gives them the skills they need to take on their JA Finance Park Virtual experience with everything they need to be successful. Following JA’s unique teacher-led curriculum, students practice newly learned microeconomic concepts and experience first-hand the complexities of managing a monthly budget as an earning, bill-paying adult—with careers, families, salaries, debt, and financial obligations—in a one-of-a-kind, online budgeting simulation.
