A program for students ages 13 years and older that provides a hands-on financial literacy simulation that gives a taste of real-world financial challenges in a fun, interactive setting.
My MoneyLife! is a large-format, experiential, real-life simulation where volunteers and school administrators and teachers help students learn what it takes to manage life as a 27-year young working professional.
Offered in partnership with schools, community organizations and agencies, My MoneyLife! gives young people (middle school to college age) the opportunity to imagine their lives as young employed adults. They are given random occupations, they find out their incomes and then are required to estimate takes to begin the simulation. Then then visit tables and interact with adult volunteers as they make common spending decisions.
Through the learning exercise, they learn about managing money, living within their means, identifying spending priorities, saving and dealing with unexpected expenses.

A program for high school students in partnership with the National Association of Security Professionals
The FAST (Finance And Scholastic Training) Track Program is a eight-month program that prepares the student for future success by helping them to build their personal road-map to the future and allowing them to explore different careers.
We expose the students to professionals and leaders of local businesses while enabling them to develop skills to work in peer groups and to become effective public speakers. We focus on personal self-sufficiency, post-secondary learning and personal financial responsibility. A cornerstone of our program shows the student how to take-charge and develop their own vision of their future.
