About the event
Reality Store provides an interactive experience in which youth learn how the choices they make regarding career, managing income and expenses, and saving and investing will affect future outcomes. To start, teens draw a salary based on a specific career and manage basic living expenses for themselves and a family. They envision the lifestyle they would like to have in their late 20s, explore a career, receive a checking account "deposit" equal to one month's salary, and spend their salary in the Reality Store on necessities and extras. They also handle some of life's unexpected events and discover whether their occupation provides the financial resources needed in order to sustain the lifestyle they want.
