Reality U at South Cobb High School

Reality U is a financial literacy simulation for middle and high school students to learn fiscal well-being and academic achievement.  This one-day financial literacy and life skills event is designed to help students understand some of the "realities" involved in preparing for adulthood. At Reality U, students are provided an adult scenario complete with family status, occupation and net monthly income. The scenario is based on the student's GPA.

During the fast-paced, hands-on exercise, students visit a variety of booths to "purchase" housing, transportation, child-care, food, utilities, etc. When the students see how far their income does or does not stretch, it is a dose of reality. Ultimately, Reality U helps students make a direct connection between the choice of academic success and financial stability in life.

Volunteers are needed to run each booth. No experience or special skills necessary. Brief training provided at the event and the fun begins.
