JA Biz Town

April 26 and 27, 2017

JA BizTown is an indoor center that is a mini city with up to 21 public and private businesses. Businesses within the center are sponsored by real local businesses, and display the authentic logo and the actual marketplace appearance of the sponsoring business, bringing the town to life for the students. Before visiting JA BizTown, students complete classroom curriculum where they learn basic economic principles such as free enterprise and business, how to make choices as a consumer, and how to manage their personal bank account. They also participate in job interviews, and learn about their new workplace and the job they will perform.  Visit Junior Achievement of Washington’s website to read more about this student experience and view the video from this year’s event:
