Last week a group from FCS volunteered at Junior Achievement's BizTown, a simulated community for 4th-6th graders. FCS volunteers oversaw several classes of 5th graders as they ran the show, conducting business and carrying out transactions and projects throughout the day.  

From the Junior Achievement website:

JA BizTown blends in-class learning with a one-day economic simulation within an 8,500 square foot replica of an American city. After four weeks of curriculum and preparation in the classroom, where students learn how to be a citizen, how an economy works, how to apply for a job and run a successful business, students visit our JA BizTown facility, located in SE Portland, for a 4.5 hour “work day” experience.

Thanks to everyone involved for making our experience at JA Biztown a great one!
