JA Finance Park Experience

Recommended for Grades 7-12

JA Finance Park is a middle school program that begins with in-class learning and culminates with a day-long visit to a realistic on-site simulation community where students are assigned a random life experience. Each student takes on a specific career, education, family size, credit score and student debt. They create and manage a monthly budget and are faced with making important financial decisions related to income, expenses, savings and credit through various life stages.

By the end of the JA Finance Park experience, students are able to:
  • Create and manage a monthly budget.
  • Navigate financial decisions through various life stages.
  • Understand the financial consequences of life choices and decisions that impact long-term goals.
  • Revisit their career goals to see if they will meet their needs for what they envision for their futures.
