What is JA Finance Park?

JA Finance Park helps area middle and high school students build a foundation upon which they can make intelligent financial decisions that last a lifetime, including decisions related to careers, income, expenses, savings, and credit.  The JA Finance Park program begins with a three-to-six-week classroom curriculum, which provides personal finance lessons and learning activities that align with state learning standards. Through these lessons, students learn about financial institutions, taxes and salaries, and budgeting. A supplemental JA Career Exploration Guide offers enhanced exploration of local educational and career opportunities. 

The classroom curriculum culminates with a visit to the state-of-the-art Lincoln Finance Park facility, where students put their learning into practice. During this one-day experience, students “become” adults faced with real-life financial situations and choices. Each student is given a personal profile that includes details relating to his or her simulated family, educational background, career, and income-level. Then, the students are immersed in a reality-based experience that involves individual and family budgeting and decisions relating to housing, transportation, food, utilities, health care, investments, philanthropy, and banking.  At all times, adult volunteers (homeschool teachers/parents) guide students toward sound financial and lifestyle choices.

Students participating in JA Finance Park receive their profiles, work through their budgets, and make purchases entirely on iPads.
