Return to Headlines

The Reality of Money simulation returns to WJHS.

"The Reality of Money, a free financial educational education simulation for high school students, has been updated and is now available for your credit union to use! The update includes new stations and student profiles, plus other modifications to the materials. Created in 2013 by a volunteer group of Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) in North Carolina and South Carolina, the materials were updated in early 2016.

Students learn, as they participate, about the impact their choices make in their budget and lifestyle, as they are "transformed" into wage earning, bill paying and financially independent young adults. The end result is that students get a powerful lesson about the real-life choices they will soon be making."

 Volunteers are needed for the March 21st event.  Please sign up at
