YOUNG AMERITOWNE® of KANSAS-
4th-8th grade students go through about four-to-six weeks of financial literacy curriculum that culminates in a field trip to the Young AmeriTowne® of Kansas in Lenora, KS. Students become "Towne citizens" and gain real-world experience as bank tellers, newspaper reporters, health technicians, and more.
Coming soon!! We are excited to launch a new, hands-on learning opportunity for high school students to help prepare them for real-world experiences. This program will focus on budgeting and decision making, as students get ready to transition from the classroom to adult life. We will be hosting this program from our AmeriTowne building in Lenora.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP/BUSINESS PLAN WORKSHOPS-
