Genesee Region JA Finance Park

JA Finance Park comes to Genesee

Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan is pleased to announce our partnership with Baker College, the home of the new Genesee Region JA Finance Park. JA Finance Park – an immersive simulation for middle and high school students – gives today’s youth the opportunity to experience their financial futures firsthand.

As nearly 24,000 students in the Genesee region have participated in JA Programs to date, this location at Baker College is the ideal expansion for our chapter. Not only will it help us keep up with the demand for youth education in the region, but it will also allow us to extend our reach and prepare more local students for the business of life.

Class is in session

  • JA Finance Park is open and ready for students
  • Accommodates 60-65 children per visit
  • Students will interact with business volunteers during visit
  • Teacher orientation is included

Without the generosity of local businesses, organizations, foundations and individuals who provided nearly $100,000 in funding, the buildout of this project would not have been possible. We are grateful for your immense contributions.
