Mad City Moneyis a two and a half hour, hands-on simulation that teaches budgeting by giving middle and high school students a taste of the real world. Complete with occupation, salary, partner, and debt, teens get an instant family, build a monthly budget, and move through various stations to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, daycare, and other needs. This workshop is a fun and interactive way to learn budgeting basics. It is open to all schools in Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence Counties. The program is targeted to 8th - 11th grade students.
