Join the Addison County Workforce Alliance for a Financial Reality Fair
All are welcome!
Gain the skills to make solid financial decisions.
Connect with potential employers.
Get support with career education, training, money, and lifestyle choices.
The Financial Reality Fair is targeted for high school juniors and seniors but is open to any 15- to 24-year-old community members who would like to learn about real life budgeting and making lifestyle choices.
In this festive atmosphere, participants "play the game of life" by picking a career and learning how much it pays – and the cost of required training and education for that career. You then move through several lifestyle choices to build a monthly budget and get a sense of the associated financial realities.
Along the way you'll be guided and advised by ACWA partners and volunteers to consider resources and options that will support your unique path to success. You will leave with a fresh perspective, some solid next steps, and a take-out meal courtesy of the Hannaford Career Center's café, The Onion.
Please share this news with students, friends and colleagues who are looking for a fun opportunity to explore career pathways and learn about personal budgeting.
Note: once you have registered, we will email more details about the Fair the week of March 14th.
Supported, in part, by Advance Vermont and VSAC
