JA Community Day

Teach Your Teenagers Real-World Money Management Skills

Put your teenagers on the path to financial success: Junior Achievement (JA) Community Day, powered by BECU, is designed to teach real-world money management skills.

Budgeting and money management – arguably the most important and universal skills needed to navigate the world today – aren't always taught in schools. Instead of letting kids get a crash course as they leave the nest, prep them with a few basic skills at JA Community Day. 

Parents and teens (ages 13–18) will learn study different financial decisions, consider the options available, and construct a budget, all based on a specific life scenario. Students will visit the 14 local businesses set up in the Junior Achievement Finance Park  to learn about and factor in decisions about health care providers, real estate, car dealerships, home improvements, banks, supermarkets, restaurants, stoke brokers, and utilities. 


Saturday, November 5
9 am–4 pm
Lunch will be provided
