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!"


International Towne is so different and so engaging, and 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?

Because International Towne is so unique, it's sometimes hard to visualize what it's all about. 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 in International Towne.'  No, it's not a classroom, nor is it an exam or presentation.  International Towne is a very 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. 


Why sign up for International Towne?

  • Flexible curriculum - International Towne's lessons are multidisciplinary, user-friendly and easy to break up for team teaching.
  • Fosters learning and self-esteem - International Towne's unique design gives all students important roles and doesn't place limitations on them.  This environment motivates students to learn and helps build self esteem.
  • Applicable to all types of student demographics - International Towne effectively engages all types of student populations, including gifted and talented, ELA, ELS, special needs and at-risk.  The program has proven successful for all types of schools, including public, private, parochial, alternative and home.

International Towne is also offered direct to youth as a weeklong summer camp.  For more information, visit Summer Programs and Camps.

"I think this is a wonderful experience for kids! It's fun, yet educational, and it allows them to understand the exchange of products internationally while teaching decision making and financial skills." - Hamilton Junior High School Teacher

A study of 1,065 teens found that 21% of 18- and 19-year-olds have credit cards.
