JA Finance Park Coming to Klamath Falls Oct. 24-27

Dealing with the practical implications of adulthood is a regular part of many high school curricula. Courses from home economics to driver’s education give students a glimpse into their future as adults.

Where does financial management fit into the equation? Often, it doesn’t.

Credit unions regularly step in to offer financial education for members, but also for students. Similar options, like JA Finance Park, also exist to partner with credit unions and communities, alike.

JA Finance Park is a turnkey solution for teachers seeking a high impact program focused on Financial Literacy and Career Exploration. JA Finance Park is a nationally recognized program, endorsed by the Oregon Department of Education and aligns with Common Core State Standards.
