CoVantage Credit Union to host Student Reality Fair at DC Everest
CoVantage Credit Union will host a reality fair on Thursday, Jan. 5, at DC Everest High School. The event starts at 8:10 a.m. and lasts until 10 a.m.
The 2½-hour hands-on simulation will give teens a taste of the real world – complete with occupation, salary, spouse, student loan debt, credit card debt and medical insurance payments. Teens get an instant family and then move about the stations to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, day care and other needs.
About 30 local businesspeople will be on site to assist the students, as well as representatives from CoVantage Credit Union.
