JA Finance Park Facility

JA Finance Park is a program for students in grades 7-12 that challenges students to apply the financial literacy concepts they learned in the classroom in a relevant and engaging simulation. Students adopt an adult persona (occupation, income, credit score, savings account, etc.) and create and manage a monthly budget that fits the wants and needs of that persona. Volunteers will guide small groups of students through the simulation and offer support, insight, and advice throughout the experience. Your guidance will make a lasting positive impact! A 1-hour volunteer training takes place the morning of each scheduled simulation.

JA of Southern California is committed to providing inclusive, equitable programs and experiences to help students navigate through the business of life.

About Junior Achievement of Southern California


6250 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068, US

Mission Statement

To educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, business and economics in order to improve the quality of their lives.


Junior Achievement of Southern California is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our three pillars of success: entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness, are helping prepare young people for the real world by showing the economic relevance of staying in school, building self-confidence, and inspiring them to dream big for their futures.

At JA Finance Park, students are given a unique life profile after answering a series of future lifestyle questions. Their life profile includes an income, marital status, even kids! Using this new adult persona, students work to create a balanced monthly budget while making decision regarding housing, transportation, insurance, savings, entertainment expenses and much more.
