|Junior Achievement's Finance Park Virtual
In a time when personal finance and the economy is such a timely and pertinent topic, Conroe ISD is excited to be introducing to every high school senior the opportunity to experience "real-life" through a purposeful and exciting participation in Junior Achievement Finance Park® Virtual.
Through the game of Finance Park Virtual, the students will play an interactive computer game where they will create their own avatar and life scenario such as fictional job, age, income, educational background and family. Based on their choices, they encounter real-world situations like how to develop a budge, maintain a household and pursue a career. Each simulation session offers a unique learning objective that builds on previous knowledge.
During this program, a community volunteer will present lessons to the students on budgeting and options for paying for their future or selecting your career. THAT IS WHERE YOU COME IN!
We are looking for community volunteers to commit to one school-day to present these much needed lessons to our seniors.
