About International Towne
International Towne is a one-of-a-kind educational program offered to 6th, 7th and 8th grade teachers to help teach students about global economics through fun, hands-on, experiential learning.
“I’ve never seen anything like it!”
“I can’t believe that the kids actually do stuff in the countries!”
“What an amazing program!”
The Towne experience is so different and so engaging. The way it motivates students to learn is truly incredible. It’s no wonder teachers sign their classes up year after year!
How Does International Towne Work?
Teachers use our curriculum to teach concepts in the classroom, which in turn prepares students for the most crucial (and fun) part of the program – a day running International Towne. The Towne is a life-like simulation of a global marketplace where students physically apply concepts they’ve learned as they step into roles as world citizens. All this takes place on-site at Young Americans Center in a 5,000 square foot space architected to be a 16-country mini-world.
