Reality Fairs

The goal of our Reality Fairs is to help our youth prepare to be successful, thriving adults in the REAL world after graduation. This interactive learning experience helps students understand their finances, how much basic household needs actually cost and the downfalls of splurging on wants vs. needs.

We now offer FREE classroom materials right here on our website so you can bring a Reality Fair straight to you. Below you will find lesson plans, budget scenario sheets, an interactive PowerPoint presentation, and a facilitator guide with instructions on how to implement a Reality Fair. If you are looking to do something on a larger scale, no problem! We are happy to come out to your school!
