Under the agreements, schools are encouraged to increase their participation each year over the next three years. The JA Finance Park program teaches students how to create a family budget and live within their means. 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.
