Through this simulation students make financial decisions about paying for housing, transportation and other monthly expenses as they are "transformed" into young adults with jobs and other responsibilities to manage. Volunteers will assist students as they move through each of the 7 stations. Students are exposed to various financial learning points such as the value of furthering their education after high school, the limiting effect bad credit has on their lifestyle choices and "living within their means" allows them to save for their financial future. This hands-on activity will ignite your passion for financial literacy and experiential learning!
