    Event Description:

    What is “The Reality Store”?

    The Reality Store is a “packaged” program that helps
    students think about their future in terms of the financial resources they will
    need to support their desired lifestyle. Students are given a simulated
    checkbook, with a full month’s salary for their chosen career, and then must
    visit various stations, paying the same types of bills that we all pay on a
    monthly basis: taxes, housing, transportation, child care, grocery, etc.
    Students will discover whether or not their chosen occupation will support their
    desired lifestyle, and, at the end of the simulation, will visit with a
    professional to determine what changes they could have implemented to ensure a
    more positive financial outcome.

    What do you need volunteers to do?

    We need volunteers from the business community to staff the
    various stations in morning shifts and afternoon shifts.  Staffing a station
    means working one-on-one with the students to help them decide
    between different purchasing options.  All information is provided to volunteers
    ahead of time; you don't need to develop or plan anything!

    Morning Shift: 7:20a.m. to 11:00a.m.

    Afternoon Shift: 11:15a.m. to 3:30p.m.
