Teens get a taste of the adult world with this hands-on simulation complete with jobs, income, family and debt. During this two and a half hour challenge, youth visit merchants to select housing, transportation, food, household necessities, clothing, daycare and other wants and needs while building a budget for their simulated family. Mad City Money allows participants to make mistakes - and suffer the consequences of their decisions - in a realistic, but safe, environment. Participate in this FREE program sponsored by Michigan State University Extension 4-H Youth Development.
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
Cost: FREE but must register so we have enough materials.
