Real Money Program at WC Career Center

With the help of many community volunteers who staffed 14 business booths, juniors at the Washington County Career recently participated in a Real Money Real World simulation. Students chose a career for the simulation based upon their current area of study at the career center. They also spent their monthly salary visiting the various booths making spending choices based on their family situation hoping they would have enough money to make ends meet at the end of the month.

The program is a product of OSU Extension and was organized for the school by Bruce Zimmer, 4-H Extension Educator in collaboration with Washington County Career Center teacher Bobbi Webb. Here are some pictures of our volunteers that helped out!
