Thank you for supporting our students as they go on this amazing adventure. 

Volunteer Role & Training:
Your role is to be the mentor or coach to a group of 6-8 students. Only “life” experience required! Training will be provided on-site prior to students arriving that morning. You will have JA staff on site to support and help you throughout the process.

Student Experience:
The simulation creates an opportunity where students are able to interact within a simulated economy and take on the role of employee, tax payer and consumer. During the visit to JA Biz Town students receive job assignments and work in teams at their assigned business. By the end of the simulation each student completes a day’s work, develops a personal budget, and makes purchasing decisions. Volunteers serve as mentors, coaching students through the decisions they need to make.
