Students who visit the Primerica storefront, located in Finance Park, will learn the financial principles of “how money works” and the importance of income protection and debt management. This next generation experiential learning experience shows students how the financial decisions they make today can impact their future.

The positive impact that Junior Achievement has on youth is truly extraordinary. More than 80% of middle school students report understanding the concept of a budget after experiencing their curriculum. Junior Achievement’s long-term goal is to educate students about their finances and encourage them to set future educational, career and financial goals for themselves.
