Event description

Today's young people need a strong foundation for making intelligent, lifelong, personal financial decisions. As a volunteer with JA Finance Park, you will help students navigate the world of personal finances as they assume the role of an "adult for the day."

At JA Finance Park, students are given a unique life profile after answering a series of future lifestyle questions. Their life profile includes income, marital status, even kids! Using this new adult persona, students work to create a balanced monthly budget while making decisions regarding housing, transportation, insurance, savings, entertainment expenses and much more.

Volunteers are needed to guide small groups of 9th grade students throughout the day at JA Finance Park.  No special budgeting expertise or preparation is necessary, and thorough training is provided for all volunteers.

We have all benefited from mentors, and this is a chance to impact the lives of underserved kids.  The students are part of the competitive Onward Scholars Program.

Pricing: Free. Volunteers must bring their own food and water.

Parking: Free parking is available in their open air lot.
