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.
