JA Finance Park inspires, guides and teaches students how to be financially capable and ready to take on their futures through a public/private nonprofit collaboration between our region’s school systems, businesses, educators and volunteer mentors who come together to inspire, guide and teach students how to be financially capable and ready to take on their futures.

JA Finance Park volunteers help guide small groups of middle-school students through a personal budgeting simulation – helping them understand their assigned family scenario and the budgeting process, and encouraging students as they then purchase items to meet the needs of their family, such as insurance, clothing, transportation, housing, groceries, and childcare—without spending more than they earn.

People of all backgrounds and experiences are encouraged to volunteer at Junior Achievement. No specialized knowledge of finance is needed. We strive to make the volunteer experience accessible and inclusive, as we believe that everyone has something to offer. Whether you have experience in finance, education, or simply want to share your knowledge of everyday spending, we invite you to join us!
