Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Junior Achievement of Greater Kansas City


Do you or your team want a fun opportunity to give back? Remember Exchange City? Come check out JA BizTown presented by CommunityAmerica Credit Union, which is a similar program. It 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 various businesses, write checks, and vote for a mayor.

Students from KCPS schools will be visiting on February 29th. 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 presented by the Mallouk Family Foundation. Come see the site and help students run an economy. There will be between 60-120 students at a time. Volunteers will work with between 4-10 students.

Sign up today at jagkc.volunteerhub.com for BizTown event on February 29th. There are also other dates available on the website. If you'd like to bring a group, please contact Sara Swearingen at sswearingen@jagkc.org.
