This year is Junior Achievement of South Central Pennsylvania’s 16th year of JA BizTown! JA BizTown allows 5th and 6th grade students from across South Central Pennsylvania to live a day as an adult. Over 9,000 students will go through the program during the 2017-2018 academic year! The town features 14 businesses from Town Hall to a Radio Station, giving students a taste for jobs that they might be interested in making into a future career. Rutter’s has been a longtime supporter of BizTown, and students even have the opportunity to work in the Restaurant which is Rutter’s branded, where students can purchase Rutter’s beverages using the “JA Biztown cash” that they earn at their jobs.
