Fibre Federal Credit Union continues a series of High School Financial Reality Fairs, which are hands-on, interactive simulations of careers and personal financial management. Fibre Federal says that these simulations give local high school students a chance to “test-drive” their careers, giving them an idea of how much money they will make in a certain career, and then to see how they can deal with housing, food, transportation and other “life necessities.” Volunteers are still needed to help with today’s Financial Reality Fair, and with the Fair that’s coming up on Thursday. Contact Fibre Federal to learn more.
