JA BizTown Leaves Lasting Impression on Students

The JA Capstone facility located on the campus of Broward College is often packed with upbeat sounds from hundreds of students at JA BizTown or JA Finance Park. Each day, it?s not unusual to receive positive feedback along the lines of, "Our students get so excited to come here," "The kids had a great time," or "This is the best field trip of the year."Recently, however, Patricia Moncrieffe, lead teacher from Dania Elementary in Dania Beach, Fla., had something special to report after she brought her students back to school. In her third term as lead teacher for the project, she ensured all students were well prepared this year.?John Nowak, project director for Junior Achievement of South Florida in Miami, Fla., shared the email he received from Patricia, which affirms the impact Junior Achievement has on young people."Thank you so very much for the wonderful day we had at JA BizTown.?My children had a blast; they are still talking about it. The amazing thing is, its not just fun, idle talk, but they are talking about the process of running the business?what they learned, what they should have done differently, how they could have maximized their sales, etc. My kids are actually having meaningful conversations about running businesses. It was so pleasant and enjoyable for my children," Patricia concluded.
