Join us virtually for a fun, safe, interactive and free financial education experience!
Bite of Reality is a hands-on based simulation that appeals to teens while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities. Teens are given a fictional occupation, salary, spouse and family, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. The teens will then "purchase" housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, day care, and other needs. Fortunately, the game also includes a "credit union" to help with their financial needs.
This interactive activity will teach teens how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. Teens will have to deal with a pushy "car salesperson" and a commission-based "realtor," and weigh their wants versus their needs. There's even a "Fickle Finger of Fate" that will give the students unexpected "expenses" or "windfalls"- just like in real life.
Bite of Reality is provided to students for free by the Richard Myles Johnson Foundation.
