Participate in our next volunteer event. We have partnered with Junior Achievement of Central Maryland to create a team of 15-20 volunteers to help the students at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School have a meaningful JA BizTown experience.

About JA BizTown:
JA BizTown is a 10,000 square-foot simulated city where fourth through sixth graders experience hands-on workplace, business, and personal finance challenges. After a few weeks of in-classroom curriculum, students are selected for a job and spend a day at the JA facility taking on the role of a real-world professional. The fun, immersive atmosphere inspires teamwork, critical thinking, and decision-making skills for each student.

The Curriculum:
JA BizTown helps students develop a stronger link between
what they learn in school and the realities of how our economy
works. For many kids, it's the first time they experience the
interconnnectedness of each of our lives. When students take
on a different role in this "micro-economy," they witness how
their decisions affect each other and gain a better
understanding of the demands of today's workplace.
