The Reality of Money

On April 10, 2019, RCC host a workshop entitled "The Reality of Money." The simulation event was a collaborative partnership between RCC, AmeriCorps/VISTA members, the State Employees Credit Union (SECU), and the Rockingham Early College High School. "The Reality of Money" was an activity that gave students a peek into the future as they were "transformed" into young adults with jobs, debt, families, and other real world responsibilities. During the simulation, students moved through multiple expense stations where volunteers assisted them in making the everyday financial decisions necessary to make it to their next payday. This activity provided a great opportunity for schools to work side by side with SECU, parents, and community volunteers to help students prepare for their financial future [description taken from the workshop].
