JA BizTown®

Teachers  /  Volunteers  /  Students  /  Photo Gallery

Elementary school students are not old enough to drive, work, vote or be the boss. But that doesn't stop them from operating banks, managing restaurants, writing checks and voting for mayor at JA BizTown! The program combines in-class learning with a day-long visit full of hands-on activities to help them connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.

The JA BizTown on-site simulation takes place at JA World®, a 10,000 square foot learning lab located in Davenport, Iowa.
