RealityFair

Montana’s Credit Unions Reality Fair

Together with the Helena credit unions, Montana’s Credit Unions is coordinating a High School Financial Reality Fair Friday, March 24, 2017 in the Montana State Capitol Rotunda.

Financial Reality Fairs

The Financial Reality Fair is a 60­–90 minute experiential learning activity where students get a feel for real‐life monthly budget. They approach the fair as if they need to budget a monthly salary while paying for housing, utilities, transportation, groceries, entertainment, and some surprises along the way.

This Reality Fair is interactive, which will allow students to visit booths and acquire information and budget expenses based on interest and family size. This eye-opening experience will give students a view into what costs they can anticipate and how to budget for the future.

The Financial Reality Fair is flexible, allowing integration into any school size or timeframe.

 

Volunteers Needed

Local high schools will be busing students up to the Capitol between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to participate in this experiential learning event. Forty-five volunteers are needed for each of the three sessions held throughout the day. Interested individuals can sign up to volunteer here.
