Through BizTown, Junior Achievement of Central Ohio provides local students the chance to experience how basic economic concepts manifest in the real world. BizTown is a four-stage program where students in fourth through sixth-grade can experience both responsibility and entrepreneurship in a free-enterprise.
JA BizTown had outgrown their space, and their location in a limited-access industrial park was also less than ideal. That’s when the community stepped in. The Columbus City Schools agreed to provide a new location – an unused facility in need of rehabilitation. Pepper donated our management services to demolish the old location so it could be re-purposed, and built out the interiors of the new location for BizTown.
