On December 20, 2018 we held our second Reality Fair at Hamilton High School and it was a huge success!
A Financial Reality Fair is an interactive experience designed for high school students to provide hands-on, real-life situations with the many financial challenges young people face as they venture out on their own. This unique live simulation provided students with a career choice and starting salary. Each student completed a budget sheet and made choices to stay within their means while paying for basic necessities such as housing, utilities, food and transportation.
This eye-opening experience gave the students a view into what costs they can anticipate and how to plan for the future.
Thank you to all of our volunteers:
