Looking for Volunteers for 8th grade Reality Store on Nov. 6th, during the school day 8:05 - 2:30
At Reality Store, 8th grade students get a glimpse of financial reality of being an adult. They are given a salary (based on their realistic job application - that will be coming home soon), and a number of children. They must take that salary and visit booths to determine what type of housing, clothes, food, groceries, utilities etc. they can afford. Our goal for them is to have a greater knowledge of what type of career they would like to have (and maybe find out that their 'dream job' won't pay the bills...) as an adult and will be able to set goals to achieve the right career. We want them to know the struggles we as parents face every month.
We are asking for your help to make the Reality Store a huge success for our students. It takes about 50+ volunteers to man the 19 booths.
If your schedule will only allow for part of a day, we can work around that. If you can help, please call or email Kathleen Sinkhorn. firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 236-4212 (the school number).
Volunteers will be served a light breakfast in the morning and lunch in between the sessions. There is nothing to prepare - We have everything you need once you get there. It is a fun program that you can SEE the light blubs going off in front of your eyes... "you mean we have to buy care insurance?" or "child care is HOW MUCH??"
Thank You for considering this worth while program
