MakingCents - Reality Check for Teens
April 16, 2014
Reality Check is game that serves as a fun way to learn more about personal finance. Teenage participants pretend to be adults with numerous financial responsibilities. Through a series of simulations, participants are required to make spending decisions related to housing, transportation, food, and other expenses. The goal is to discover the relationship between income and expenses, and, hopefully, apply what is learned to real life!
These programs are part of the MakingCents: Resources to Help Your Money Grow and Smart investing@your library® series, a partnership between the American Library Association and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation.
