JA of Southern Nevada Finance Park Virtual


JA Finance Park Virtual helps students build a foundation upon which they can make intelligent financial decisions that last a lifetime, including decisions related to income, expenses, savings, and credit. The program comprises several teacher-led, in-class lessons and a variety of optional, extension activities. Options are available to use either the entry-level or advanced curriculum, based on grade level and students’ prior knowledge. The experience culminates in a hands-on, online budgeting simulation that is supported by volunteers. The JA Finance Park Virtual simulation has been fully redeveloped, with a brand-new experience that offers two implementation options: Entry Level, geared toward middle school, and Advanced Level, geared toward high school.

JA FINANCE PARK VIRTUAL – ENTRY LEVEL

Students will:

  • Be introduced to the concept of “adulting,” laying the groundwork for their future.
  • Create a monthly budget based on a randomly assigned life persona.

JA FINANCE PARK VIRTUAL – ADVANCED LEVEL

Students will:

  • Choose their own “adult adventure” by selecting their persona based on career and education choices.
  • Deep dive into financial consequences of life choices and decisions impacting long-term goals.
  • Navigate financial decisions through various life stages and budget beyond one month.

Objectives:

  • Determine how career choice affects future finances and lifestyle.
  • Summarize the purpose of taxes and how they affect finances over time.
  • Analyze how saving impacts financial well-being and security.
  • Evaluate the risks and benefits of investing.
  • Explain the advantages and disadvantages of different payment methods over time.
  • Construct a budget to address long-term financial goals using hypothetical life situations.
  • Clarify how debt affects financial success.
