On My Own: A Reality Fair for Teens

Saturday, April 29, 2017 -
10:00am to 1:00pm

High school students will get a taste of independence in this reality fair sponsored by Vystar. Teens will assume they are 25 years old and are the financial supporter of their household. Each person is assigned a family scenario, career and salary. Participants will visit booths to make decisions about housing, transportation, groceries, utilities, and other areas. All decisions will affect their financial futures. This hands-on, real-life simulation provides a fun, yet realistic, preview of the future.
Lunch will be provided to participants. Register by April 15th to ensure your participation.
