Announcements and Important Events
Bite of Reality Coming to Whitney on 1/18/18. Adult volunteers needed.
Bite of Reality” teaches basic money management skills in a fun, interactive setting designed to provide teens with a taste of real-world financial realities, such as paying off student loans, getting medical insurance, and paying for basic necessities like groceries and utilities. Staff and volunteers will serve as mentors and play the roles of business people adults encounter in their financial lives. At the start of the session, teens are provided with a fictional identity, including an occupation, salary, family, credit cards and a checking account. They then visit a variety of table-top stations to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, daycare and other needs.
This financial workshop, sponsored by Schools Credit Union, is being hosted at Whitney HS for all the 12th graders on campus. The event will occur on Thursday, 1/18/18. We need 18 volunteers from 7:30 am until 12:30 pm in order to pull off this event. The volunteers will help run the individual stations with the help of the credit union employees.
