It gives students a more realistic snapshot of what budgeting, credit, etc. looks
like in the real world. The use of the tablet makes that easier than what I can

do in the classroom. I think it also helps reinforce concepts that some
students may have struggled with and it helps bring closure to the personal

finance aspect of the Economics and Personal Finance course.

JA Star Parham
2017 JACV
Future Laureate

Growing up, my main goal was to be financially successful in life. The “real
world” was a frightening world to me – until I participated in a JA program at
my high school. I learned about financial literacy and work readiness. Before
these programs, I was scared of adulthood because of finances, retirement
plans and having a job that may not suit me. But now, I am no longer afraid. I
know I can have my ideal life with the right budgeting and planning. Francis

Bacon once said, “knowledge is power.”  Now I have the knowledge AND
power to succeed not only today – but in the years soon to come!
