JA Banks in Action™
Through hands-on classroom activities and local, regional, and national competitions, JA Banks in Action teaches high school students the principles of the banking industry, and introduces them to the challenges of successfully operating a bank in a competitive environment. JA Banks in Action not only educates young people around the world about the banking industry, but also encourages them to become better citizens and smarter consumers.
Students will learn how bankers make decisions and practice making banking decisions themselves. The most successful bankers are those who create a winning strategy to best serve their customers and increase profits by managing the banks assets and liabilities against others competing in the market.
