Fun, Safe, and Interactive

FREE EVENT OPEN TO TEENS AND ADULTS 16+

Bite of Reality is a two hour, hands-on simulation that appeals to teens/adults 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. Participants then walk around to various table-top stations to “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 participants how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. Teens/adults 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 some of the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls”—just like in real life.

Twenty adult volunteers needed to staff table top stations.  Watch this volunteer video,
