Financial Reality Fairs prepare high school students throughout the region to make sound money-saving and spending decisions that will benefit them for a lifetime.

By partnering with the region’s credit unions, we provide real-world simulations that guide students through a day-in-the-life of an adult’s financial responsibilities through an app-based platform called “Bite of Reality.” Students complete the 90-minute budgeting exercise by making everyday purchases and deciding on expenses, which impact their budget in real time, giving them a realistic look at money management.
