In JA’s Investment Strategies Program (ISP), students explore the ways in which people save and invest for their future.
The program includes both interactive classroom lessons and an online stock market simulation, Stock Market Challenge, where students manage their own simulated stock portfolio. The simulation is linked to live data from North American stock markets and is an exciting, risk-free way for students to apply the investing principles they learn in the program.
ISP is available to British Columbia classrooms through our online portal. A classroom teacher facilitates ISP Virtual and is supported via online videos of ISP volunteers. ISP Virtual also includes all the resources needed for the Stock Market Challenge stock market simulation.
At the end of ISP, students will know how to research and select investments and manage an online stock portfolio. This prepares them to make savvy investment choices throughout their lives.
