AmeriTowne in action!


Nex-Generation has partnered with the Young Americans Center for Financial Education in Denver, CO, to bring Young AmeriTowne® of Kansas to Northwest and North Central Kansas.


Young AmeriTowne® of Kansas is a four-to-six-weeks, financial literacy curriculum designed for 5th - 8th grades that teaches basic economics, banking, money management, government, communications, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and employment.


The culmination of the classroom experience is a field trip to Young AmeriTowne® of Kansas in the former Lenora High School building, in Lenora, KS, where students-turned-citizens fill real-world roles as mayor, judge, police officers, mail carriers, managers, accountants, key employees, and volunteer fire fighters.


Students spend their “paycheck” at all 10 shops (Bank, Towne Hall, Snack Shop, Container Shop, Sign & Print, Energy Resources, Newspaper, TV Station, YATK Radio, and Medical Center), as well as donate to local charities.

Teachers evaluate student success through accomplishment of classroom exercises, involvement in Towne, and completion of shop books and individual bank accounts.

Join the following schools who are participating in the AmeriTowne program this school year: Lakeside, Northern Valley, NCKESC Gifted, Colby Sacred Heart, Sylvan-Lucas, Ell-Saline, Stockton, Osborne, Phillipsburg, Plainville Sacred Heart, Thunder Ridge, Roosevelt (Hays), Hill City, and a northwest Kansas Homeschool group.
