Real World Financial Simulation

The Refuge, 1418 W Elm St, Olney, TX 76374, USA
About the event
In the Welcome to the Real World simulation, students assume they have completed basic educational requirements for their chosen career, are single, 25 years of age, and independent, with no financial support from family or others. Youth participants make lifestyle and spending choices like those faced by adults. They pay taxes, determine a savings amount, make a student loan payment — if applicable — and spend their salary on the necessary and other items based on choices with varying dollar amounts, which are based upon the prices in their community.
We also need parents to help with the stations. If you can help, please contact Terri Hayter at 940-867-9920
