Georgia Gwinnett College has partnered with Junior Achievement (JA) to establish a presence in Discovery Center at Gwinnett by sponsoring a “storefront” in JA BizTown.
This unique learning environment creates an opportunity where all Gwinnett County sixth graders are able to apply classroom lessons to a simulated macro-economy in which they take on the roles of employee, taxpayer and consumer.
During a visit to JA BizTown, students receive unique job assignments and work in teams at their assigned businesses. By the end of each simulation, students complete a day’s work, develop personal budgets and make purchasing decisions.
GGC was recognized as a founding partner during the recent grand opening event. Corporate, civic and educational leaders toured the facility and learned about the anticipated impact on the thousands of students who will participate in the program.
