Challenge

The earlier students can connect with professional role models, the more encouraged they will be to pursue academic excellence and aspire to a higher education. At JA Finance Park, 200 economically disadvantaged at-risk students will receive a life situation scenario detailing their career, their salary, and their family situation. With the help of Junior Achievement volunteers, they will make 23 budgeting decisions such as buying a house, homeowner's insurance, and saving for their future.

Solution

The core purpose of Junior Achievement is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
When students visit JA Finance Park and face the challenge of budgeting for their fictional family situation, they make important financial decisions covering where their family should live to what the grocery budget is for the month. Volunteers, serving as budget advisors, guide students through the process of building a monthly budget with their assigned incomes and share their experiences

Long-Term Impact

With your support, 200 students will be one step closer to being successful and contributing members of society, inspired to make smart academic and economic choices through Junior Achievement programs. This means less young people will continue the cycle of poverty as they become adults.
