BizTown donationsCenterville Elementary
Biztown is an exceptional, educational program that helps students learn basics of financial literacy as well as work and career readiness skills. This program entails 12 teacher-led lessons where students learn how an economy runs, what free enterprise is, how banks work, how checks and credit cards work, the types of skills needed to get various jobs, and the basics of how to interview. Then, after this classroom learning is completed, students visit the JA Biztown Simulation. At JA Biztown, students have a job for the day based on their interview, they perform the skills for their job, they earn money, and they spend it using checks, cash, and debit cards.
