JA BizTown is a great place to visit, and now, students can experience being a CEO from the comfort of their homes with JA BizTown Adventures!

Through the JA BizTown Adventures, students will enter an exciting virtual business world by assuming up to five different roles, from CEO to financial expert to innovator to salesperson to consumer. At the end of the five JA BizTown Adventures, students will have a 360 degree view of how a business works and how money flows through an economy.
These adventures are meant to be enjoyed by students at home with a caring adult. We recommend students take the adventures in the order below. If you are an educator and are interested in additional curriculum for your classes, contact Sally Eidge, VP of Capstone.
