Hosted by Genisys Credit Union and in partnership with the MCUL, the virtual reality fair simulates one year of independent living and teaches students how to manage their finances with a set budget through a mobile app. They choose a career, are assigned a credit score, and have to navigate through buying housing, clothing, food, etc. It's very interactive and is a real eye opener. The virtual fair is geared towards high school 10-12th graders. A mobile phone or tablet that can download an app is required.
Pre-registration is required. You will be emailed additional info prior to start of program.
