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 and career development curriculum designed for 4th - 8th grades (adaptable for high school, too) that teaches basic economics, banking, money management, government, communications, entrepreneurship*, philanthropy, and employment.


*NEW entrepreneurship lesson that you'll love!


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, NEW Digital Media Agency, Energy Resources, NEW Nex-Great Idea Entrepreneurship Shop, TV Station, Radio Station, 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.


  • $25/Student within Nex-Generation's 28 county region.

  • $40/student outside Nex-Generation's region.

Financial assistance within the region may be available. Please contact us for further information.

"The whole experience is really something to witness. It's one thing to talk to the kids about finances and life skills, but once they are hands-on it opens the doors to understanding it better."
