BizTown - Help Students Run a City for a Day - Junior Achievement

Save to Favorites

Junior Achievement of Greater Kansas City


JA BizTown presented by Community America Credit Union is a program where 4th-6th grade students spend a day running a simulated city. This popular program allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for mayor. [Similar to the old Exchange City]

Volunteers will staff each business and assist students during the day while getting guidance from JA Staff. Training will occur that morning before the students arrive. No additional knowledge or training is necessary.

This is a new program that takes place in our beautiful new Youth Learning Lab in Kansas City. Be one of the first to see the site and help students run an economy. There will be between 50-120 students at a time.
