Teens get a taste of the adult world with this hands-on simulation, complete with jobs, income, family and debt. During this 2.5 hour challenge, youth visit merchants to select housing, transportation, food, household necessities, clothing, daycare and other wants and needs while building a budget for their simulated family. Mad City Money allows participants to make mistakes - and suffer the consequences of their decisions - in a realistic, but safe, environment. Most participants are surprised to learn "I can't have a big house and a new truck on my salary and still pay for daycare and groceries.″ Once the shock wears off, they re-evaluate choices and manage their money effectively. Participate in this FREE Money Smart Week event sponsored by Michigan State University Extension.
