“GET REAL!” volunteers are needed on April 27, 2022!

Volunteers needed to help area high school students “GET REAL!” on April 27, 2022!

Do teens today have the skills needed to make it in the real world? Help area High School students “Get Real” at the annual event where they practice real-life financial decisions.

At “Get Real,” students from 6 area High Schools are given a life scenario, including job, spouse, children, debt, and more. In this simulation, they must navigate a month’s worth of financial transactions, purchasing necessities and “making ends meet.”

It takes over 120 enthusiastic community and local business volunteers to create this opportunity.

If you’d like to take part in this fun and fast paced day, consider volunteering at Get Real! on April 27, 2022.

For more information, or to register as a volunteer, contact the Richland County Extension office at 608-647-6148 or email: chelsea.wunnicke@wisc.edu.

Your support helps make this a successful learning experience for all our students.
