The Money Jar

Welcome to The Money JAR, a weekly show about Kids and Money, brought to you by Junior Achievement. Along with a cadre of guest experts, show hosts Evan Wilson and Todd Yuzuriha pair their unique perspectives with a mild dose of humor as they attempt to demystify the common challenges all families face while trying to educate their children on the economics of life. From the pros and cons of weekly allowances to strategies for saving $25,000 by the age of 25, our show is designed to be a practical catalyst for meaningful dialog, helping families to begin ongoing conversations around the ever-illusive subjects of financial literacy, entrepreneurship and being ready for the workforce ahead.

Technology is changing the world of work for our children. For instance, most jobs for today's middle school students haven't been invented yet. Students need to be adept at learning new technologies and new skills. In this episode, we give an overview of virtual reality and where it's headed, talking with Wes Twigg, Senior Research Analyst for Pacific Crest Securities.

Then we talk with ITech Prep Middle School Social Studies Teacher John Zingale and students Abigail (Abi) Evanson, Shelby Fisher, Garrett Howell, and Weston Goff who are developing a virtual reality tour for Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.
