- The 3 ways to engage HS students about Personal Finance:
1) Game-based learning
2) Budget simulations
3) Smartphone apps
At Junior Achievement of Hawaii we do just THAT! Our hands-on/activity-based learning programs and materials are definitely "Game-based"! For example, our JA Personal Finance Program plays a game in which the students split up into groups and play a game similar to jeopardy to learn about Budget #needs vs. #wants.
JA Personal Finance program also simulates budgets by asking the students to put together a timeline of their lives and create a budget around the milestones.
Lastly, at Junior Achievement we have the "JA Build Your Future" app to show students about various career paths and the financial and educational implications they will need to take (ie. 2-year vs. 4-year college education, financial aid services, etc.) (Check it out!)
