To help prepare our youth for adulthood, UPFCU hosts Reality Fairs to provide students the tools necessary to budget for their futures. This fun and interactive program is a hands-on simulation allowing students to experience financial challenges they will face as they begin navigating life in the real world.
The goal is to empower them with information and decision-making skills necessary to achieve financial freedom.
Each student is assigned a career, starting salary and budget sheet. Then they simulate setting up their personal household: renting an apartment and setting up utilities, financing a car, allowing for the purchase of clothing and food, buying a television, etc.
