Reality Fair

Teens get a taste of the adult world with this hands-on simulation complete with jobs, income, and debt. During this one-hour challenge, youth select housing, transportation, food, household necessities, and other wants and needs while building a budget for their simulated life after high school. Reality Fair allows participants to make mistakes - and suffer the consequences of their decisions - in a realistic, but safe, environment. Participate in this FREE program hosted by Michigan State University Extension and sponsored by Genisys Credit Union.

Who should attend: 10th, 11th, and 12th graders and young adults contemplating moving out on their own.  

Date and Time:  Wednesday, April 28 at 4 p.m. EST to approximately 5:15 p.m. EST

Where: Zoom link and materials will be emailed one week prior to the event.
