On June 6th, Ellin & Tucker spent the day at Junior Achievement’s Biztown. Biztown is AMAZING! We spent the day with Hampstead Hill Academy. Biztown encourages students to learn about the free enterprise system by running a simulated town economy for a day. After reviewing lessons with their teacher in the classroom, students come to JA BizTown to apply their learnings. Student experiences vary from working in a bank, a television station, or a retail store; to managing personal finance, writing checks, selling products and paying business bills. As a result, students realize the relationship between what they learned in school and how it applies to the real world of work.
It was an amazing day and really cool program. I hope we get to go there again. Thank you to everyone that volunteered!
