Monday, our Seniors had an eye opening experience, as teachers, dozens of our parents, and community partners from CCU and Yark Automotive teamed up to facilitate Finances 101. This program assigned each student an occupation, a family situation, and then sent them through the ups and downs that life brings to the bill payers of each household. Students tracked their spending, with many being forced to make tough choices regarding wants when the needs burned up all of their cash. We followed up by sharing a budget spreadsheet with each senior to keep and use in the future that will help them set a budget and track spending.
