Teach Students Money Expo
We're excited to bring back our popular Teach Students Money Expo! On Saturday, April 6, 2024, from 10:08 AM – 2:00 PM at Oak Ridge High School! Teach Students Money Expo offers high school students an immersive financial education experience through a "Real World" simulation in which they take on the role of 28-year-olds in Central Florida.
About Teach Students Money Expo:
Teach Students Money Expo is a priceless opportunity for high school students to learn how to cash in on their financial future. Through fun and interactive sessions, they will master the cents and sensibility of money management. In the "Real World" simulation, students get a taste of adulthood in Central Florida within the city of "EightVille." They are given a credit score and monthly income based on their dream education, career, and family situation. Exploring different storefronts, students have to make it rain or save for a rainy day by choosing between options like a cozy studio or a spacious mansion and balancing their needs and wants to overcome life's hurdles without going bankrupt. The simulation showcases various businesses and volunteers running over 25 storefronts, where students spend their hard-earned money to pay for everyday monthly bills such as rent, electricity, food, insurance, childcare, and transportation. Like grown-ups, students must stick to a budget throughout the activity and aim to end with a surplus. After the simulation, students talk to a financial advisor to reflect on their choices and evaluate their financial savvy.
