Livingston Fifth Graders Get Real-Life Experience Through BizTown Simulation
Fifth graders from Riker Hill and Mt. Pleasant Elementary Schools in Livingston recently visited Junior Achievement’s BizTown to experience a day in the workforce.
Dawn Schwartz, a Livingston resident and the senior vice president of development and communications for Junior Achievement of New Jersey, said it was thrilling to see “the young people of [her] community participate in BizTown,” including her son, Nathan.
“I’ve been working for the Junior Achievement mission between the New York and New Jersey operations for nearly 20 years,” said Schwartz. “To see my own child role play in BizTown, gaining the critical life skills that Junior Achievement teaches, was beyond rewarding.”
