Each year, more than 21,000 fifth grade students in Broward and South Palm Beach Counties visit Junior Achievement of South Florida’s JA BizTown. JA World Huizenga Center at the Lillian S. Wells Pavilion houses two identical JA BizTowns. Both the Dave and Lorraine Thomas JA BizTown and the Falcone Family JA BizTown have 18 public and private storefronts, all sponsored by real local businesses, that help brings the town to life for the students.
This year, while our students cannot be in our facility, we have brought the JA BizTown experience to the digital world! The virtual JA BizTown Program is accessible online and flexible for in-class or remote learning. The program supports critical thinking skills and student engagement and helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school, via in-classroom or remote learning, and the real world.
