Powerful Personal Finance Simulation for Teens

Following completion of a series of classroom lessons, students participate in a virtual simulation of real world personal finance decision making. Provided a "virtual identity," including age, education and income, students must craft a budget and navigate a series of interactive "decision stations," covering:

Housing, Insurance, Healthcare, Transportation, Childcare, Clothing, Recreation and more!

See the program in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9LyWKnfYQQ.

Students complete the simulation in groups of 8-10, led by a JA-trained community volunteer. Sign up today to lead your own group as they navigate the simulation and experience a taste of the "real world." We need 10+ volunteers each day to make sure ALL our students are able to complete the simulation.

This is a FUN and powerful way to bring REAL WORLD personal finance lessons to local teens. No prior training is required; we will conduct a training session at the simulation prior to student arrival. Lunch will be provided.
