We need volunteers for the “Reality of Money” Event happening Friday, November 3rd at Middle Creek Community Center located next to the High School.

“Reality of Money” places each student in a scenario where they are 25 years old and employed. However, students are assigned the path that life has taken them on. Some students find they’re earning $40,000 per year and are married with children, while others are single parents making less than $20,000 annually. They will visit twelve stations where they have to make financial decisions on items such as housing, child care, transportation, etc.

Over 300 Middle Creek students will be participating in the event, a program developed by the State Employee’s Credit Union (SECU) that illustrates the financial challenges of adult life. The program’s goal is to help young people understand personal finances and the real-life implications of the choices they make as students and adults.

If you’ve ever paid bills or managed a family/personal budget then you are more than qualified to volunteer! A light breakfast will be provided for the morning volunteers and lunch will be provided after the first session.
