VOLUNTEER with The Southwest Gwinnett Chamber!

JA BizTown creates an opportunity for students to interact within a simulated economy and take on the role of citizen, consumer and employee. During the visit to JA BizTown, students work in teams of 6-8 to manage their assigned business with the goal of generating a profit. Students also earn paychecks that they can use to purchase purchase products and services from the different stores to practice basic personal financial management. 

Volunteer Role: Volunteers serve as business consultants for the day, coaching a group students through the decisions and tasks they need to complete to successfully operate their businesses.
