For the youngest learners in Early Childhood through 5th grade, we focus on Career awareness. Students get to explore various careers through special experiences and activities.  They meet professionals who work in the fields like engineering, medicine, and social work.  They even get to try out some real-world simulations like running a mini city at JA Biz Town.
