Ravenswood Community Services
The Reality Fair is a program sponsored by Ravenswood Community Services for seventh and eighth graders at Ravenswood Elementary School. Students research a career they are interested in persuing, and then are put through a series of "life stations" in the gym that resemble The Game of Life®. Students learn about how to manage a monthly budget and make spending choices given a randomly assigned set of life circumstances.
30-40 volunteers plan and staff the event taking on a variety of roles such as bankers, car salesmen, travel agents, and debt counselors. Students then take this experience back to the classroom and further explore their choices through various classroom activities. We'll ask that volunteers arrive at 8:30 a.m. and we will conclude no later than 12 p.m.
