JA Our Community®
Sponsor by GE

JA Our Community explores the interdependent roles of workers in a community, the work they perform, and how communities work.

Following participation in the program, students will be able to:
• Identify a variety of jobs in a community.
• Make informed decisions.
• Recognize how money flows through a community’s economy.

Session Titles and Summaries

Session One: How Does a Community Work?
Students identify typical jobs by studying a poster illustrating a community. They develop an awareness of how people live and work together in a typical city or town.

Session Two: Sweet “O” Donuts
Students, individually and in groups, use different production strategies to simulate producing donuts for the Sweet “O” Donuts shop.

Session Three: The Role of Government
Students learn about the economic role of government in a community by identifying services that government provides to citizens. Students also recognize that government must collect taxes to pay for these services.

Session Four: A New Business
Students determine the best use for the empty store on the How Does a Community Work? poster. The step-by-step decision-making process helps students understand how group decisions are made.

Session Five: Money Moves
Students learn about an economy’s circular flow of money and how money is exchanged for goods and services.
