Junior Achievement of Central Virginia (JACV) announced recently the establishment of memoranda of understanding with four local school districts – Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico and Richmond. The documents provide a framework for area schools to adhere to a recommended program plan with Junior Achievement, focusing on JA Finance Park, a middle and high school program focused on personal finance and career readiness. Under the agreements, schools are encouraged to increase their participation each year over the next three years.

It consists of thirteen in-class lessons and culminates in a visit to the Capital One/JA Finance Park facility where students become adults for a day – making tough buying decisions, paying bills and investing their virtual savings. In the 2014-2015 school year, over 4,700 Central Virginia students participated in the program. With the memoranda in place, the number of participating students is expected to more than double by 2018.
