About the Museum:

Junior Achievement is a non-profit group whose goal is to build young people’s capacity to spur economic development and contribute to America’s global competiveness. Junior Achievement helps prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate and effectively manage wealth, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace.

Junior Achievement of Central Maryland offers one day programs at their Owings Mills facility for students.

JA BizTown: 5th – 6th graders:
JA BizTown encourages students to learn about the free enterprise system by participating in a simulated town. Student experiences vary from working in a bank, a television station, or a retail store, to managing personal finance, writing checks and accounting. Students realize the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a simulated economy.

JA Finance Park: 8th – 9th graders:
JA Finance Park enables students to build foundations for making intelligent lifelong personal finance decisions. Students participate in 19 teacher-led lessons. Afterwards, they participate in a 4.5 hour simulation at the JA Owings Mills facility. Students learn about the many pieces of a personal budget, such as rent/mortgage, car payments, insurance, savings, entertainment, groceries, and more! As students strive to create a balanced budget, they begin to understand the value of money, and make the connection between hard work, education, and their future earnings.
