Join Jamara Wilson as she represents the Board Members of 8 Cents In a Jar at their inaugural Teach Students Money Expo.
Teach Students Money is an expo for students, grades 9-12, that combines high-energy, interactive sessions designed to educate students on real-world financial life skills.
Through this “Real World” simulation, students assume the role of 28-year olds in Central Florida, who are provided a monthly salary for their chosen education, career and family scenario. At each storefront, they make decisions concerning their standard of living (e.g., a one bedroom apartment versus a three bedroom home) and prioritize needs versus wants to adapt to life’s complications.
