Reality of Money Financial Simulation

  • The Reality of Money Financial Simulation allows students to 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 various expense 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 how to "live within their means". This is a great opportunity for VMCCA students to work side by side with SECU, parents, and community volunteers to help students prepare for their financial future. This hands-on activity will ignite your passion for financial literacy and experiential learning!
