Junior Achievement Finance Park

Imagine you're a 27-year-old single parent earning $25,000 a year as an office assistant, or perhaps you're a 35-year-old regional manager making $65,000 annually. How will you manage your money? At JA Finance Park, students act like adults for a day and make personal financial decisions in a realistic "city" simulation. Regardless of the role, students are assigned to play, they develop enduring financial skills by participating in classroom-based and simulated experiences. Before you present JA Finance Park, Junior Achievement staff will provide comprehensive training and share the goals of the simulation experience. You will become familiar with the daily schedule, the work expected of the students, and your role and responsibilities as a volunteer. You also will be instructed on how to use the Volunteer Guide and Volunteer Checklist to help facilitate the program. Volunteers are key to the success of JA Finance Park. From the beginning of the volunteer training until the end of the simulation, JA staff will be available to answer all your questions. The time commitment at JA Finance Park is minimal compared to the significant impact you will make on the lives of young people. The volunteer day, composed of full training and the simulation experience, will pass quickly and leave you astonished by how much the students accomplish in such a short period of time.

How you help A want versus a need. How to balance a checkbook. Don't you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? We want volunteers that care about not on their future and the people that will be a part of it but specifically want to help the youth have the tools they need to succeed in all aspects.
