teens at a That's Reality event

That's Reality

Teaching teens about “real world” finances.

Before your teen ventures out into the real world as an adult, it’s important for him or her to learn healthy financial habits and money management skills. This interactive workshop provides a look into the real world of jobs and money.

That’s Reality teaches teens real life money skills

  • making a monthly budget
  • creating spending plans
  • understanding how to balance needs and personal wants
  • learning to juggle different bills

That’s Reality helps teens understand the importance and value of building healthy money habits. The “real world” can be tough, but being unprepared makes it even tougher.

Note: That’s Reality is best suited for teens ages 13 to 18

We believe that financial literacy is an important skill to start cultivating early. Bring a teen to this FREE seminar for valuable lessons on budgeting, spending and saving. They’ll get a job, a family, and “shop” for food, housing, daycare, clothing, transportation and more. Things will get even more real when they’re faced with debt and encounter true-to-life financial hurdles in this interactive budgeting simulation!
