Reality Fair

In celebration of Credit Union Youth month, we hosted a Reality Fair at Florence Carlton High School. A Reality Fair is a hands-on experience in which students are given a career and starting salary to complete a budget sheet. They are then required to live within their monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing, food, and childcare. We even had a chance to wheel to show the importance of being prepared for life’s bumps in the road (flat tire, cellphone repair, work bonus, etc.).
The fair was a lot of fun and a huge success. Thank you to all our volunteers for making this possible and we look forward to many more to come. Stay tuned! 😉
