RESOURCE: Junior Achievement of Hawaii - Personal Finance Curricula - GRADE 3-5

Junior Achievement (JA) programs provide a modular learning experience that teaches students about the mindset and the skills needed for success by aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators who add value to any organization.


JA pairs teachers with volunteer presenters to deliver the program in either in-person, virtual, or blended formats, and/or will provide training for teachers to deliver these programs themselves as well. Provision of a volunteer to teach each class is provided free of charge. Call or Email Junior Achievement of Hawaii for more information or to schedule a volunteer to teach the program below.


JA Our City featuring Cha-Ching introduces students to financial literacy and learning objectives for third–grade social studies, including how people manage their money and the importance of economic exchange within a city. This learning experience is available for classroom-based or remote classroom implementation. It includes five 45-minute sessions, with additional extended learning activities and optional digital assets offered throughout. Spanish translation is available for JA Our City.
