A financial literacy curriculum from Ohio State University Extension and presented by Pickaway WORKS to all Pickaway County 8th graders, Real Money Real World includes classroom lessons and a culminating simulation activity manned by community volunteers, teaching students the difference between wants and needs in the family budget and to recognize the impact of their education level on potential future income.
*Please contact us if you have questions or are interested in volunteering at a Real Money Real World simulation in the future.
