JA of Dallas announces a new virtual program:
Adventures can be used as an alternative simulation experience when or if students are unable to visit the onsite location for JA BizTown. Alternatively, JA Adventures may be explored before or after the on-site simulation, enhancing the overall learning experience.
JA Adventures is a culminating experience for students that follows the JA BizTown curriculum which is now being offered as virtual self-guided curriculum. Students gain an understanding of various aspects of running a business as they take on the roles of chief executive officer, chief financial officer, marketing director, sales manager, and consumer via five online, self-guided adventures. Using a branching, story-driven treatment, each adventure provides students an opportunity to practice problem-solving, decision making, critical thinking, and analytical thinking, as well as weigh saving and spending choices, consider risk management and insurance strategies, and make personal and business-related financial decisions.
If you are interested in learning more about JA Adventures, or other JA programs JA of Dallas is offering virtually, please email Amanda Ramirez.
