Kids Marketplace – Volunteers Needed!
- Thursday, November 8, 2012

Kids Marketplace is adapted for elementary school age children. Students receive a job and a monthly income in play money and decide how to spend it at the animal shelter, fun station, grocery store, bank, and other expense stations. Students are encouraged to save a portion of their income and to contribute some to charity. Free.
We need several volunteers to make this event possible. No prior experience is required; please contact Jennifer Abel (below) if you are interested in helping with this event.

Reality Store – Volunteers Needed!
- Monday, November 19, 2012 - Tuesday, November 20, 2012
- 8:30am - 3:00pm
It is becoming more important than ever for high school graduates to have sound money management skills and a clear understanding of financial decision making. Reality Store is a simulation in which students receive a hypothetical family situation with a monthly income and are then required to make spending decisions on housing, transportation, groceries, clothing, medical care, entertainment, savings, and other expenses without running out of money or going into debt.
We need many volunteers to make this event possible. This is a two day event, but we could use anyone who has availability for any part of these days. No prior experience is required; please contact Jennifer Abel (below) if you are interested in helping with this event.
