LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Sixth graders at East Tipp Middle School are a little more business savvy thanks to Junior Achievement of Greater Lafayette. Junior Achievement's BizTown is a simulation where students learn what it takes to run a business.
The sixth graders created resumes and applied for jobs at companies like Kirby Risk and State Farm and got to take on different professional roles and work in teams.
They put their classroom experience into practice at the BizTown storefronts.
Capstone Manager Resa Hodnatt says the lessons learned today don't end here.
"It also is really interesting, some of the students that have been through BizTown in the past even say 'I remember when I worked at X-business at BizTown and I want to work for that company," said Resa.
