Financial Literacy 

Work Readiness 

JA More than Money introduces middle school students to financial literacy and entrepreneurship, and to social studies learning objectives that include money management skills, goods and services, and global markets. Through hands on activities and a JA cast of characters serving as symbols for financial literacy and entrepreneurship concepts, students will learn a practical approach to starting a business and making smart decisions about managing money.

Following participation in the program, students will be able to: identify the role of money in everyday life, think like entrepreneurs and identify a small business they can start, learn the basic steps of starting a business, consider the advantages and disadvantages of borrowing money, and explore the opportunities of global markets.
