RealityU organizers still looking for volunteers
(August 14, 2018)
The RealityU program is coming to Silver Lake Jr/Sr High School again, and organizers are still in need of volunteers.
The event will take place on Aug. 24 for eighth and 10th graders from 8:30 a.m. until around 11:30 a.m. RealityU is a personal finance program that begins with the students taking a computerized interest inventory, being assigned a career based on their interests, and a salary based on their GPA. It truly brings to students a real-world experience.
Students will once again go through 13 different stations as 26-year-olds who are single, married and have children, or divorced and paying child support. Married couples have to do the simulation together and, regardless of their scenario, will have to decide how to spend and keep track of their money. Go to www.realityu.org to get more information on the program.
Volunteers are still needed for the two 75-minute sessions. There is no need for any preparation on the part of the volunteer. The program lays everything out.
