Minnesota Jump$tart Takes a Test Drive with Royal Credit Union

 

Last week, Royal Credit Union hosted a financial education program for senior students at Eden Prairie High School. The program, “Test Drive,” is a reality fair that simulates the financial experiences and decision-making many working adults face. Prior to participating, students were asked to select a career and research the education needed and expected salary for that particular job or industry. During the hands-on event, students visited various stations to choose and pay for their housing, transportation, clothing, and food, with the expectation that they live within their monthly salary, while also considering their marital status and if they have children.  Additional stations related to entertainment, pets and unexpected expenses were also included for students to visit. Jump$tart Board Member, Stephanie Musgrove, volunteered at the event, along with several other business and community volunteers.
