Reality Check


Reality Check provides students the opportunity to experience real life as a 26-year-old by taking them through scenarios regarding personal finances, education, jobs and careers and family, and allowing the student participants to navigate the ins and outs of the real world through the simulation. Participants are taught the importance of money management — just what it takes to provide for themselves as well as a family, and they learn how their commitment to education has a direct impact on job availability, salary and the quality of life they can expect down the road.

The hands-on program is made possible each year through the volunteer efforts of local community leaders and Chamber members who help out at each of the participating schools.
