Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) held an information session aimed at letting education stakeholders know about its enhanced financial literacy curriculum. The session showed school districts how they could use the JA Finance Park curriculum to help their students meet the 9.1 Standard graduation requirement in financial literacy. JA’s financial literacy program fully aligns with the state mandate, and is used by districts to help their students meet the state’s curriculum standards needed to graduate from high school.
“We are excited about the possibilities for the financial literacy and career readiness curriculum, we call Finance Park,” said Catherine Milone, President of Junior Achievement of New Jersey. “It is so important to help students understand personal money management and personal finance. These are skills that will last a lifetime.”
