What is FutureNow: Finance? FutureNow:Finance, formerly known as Reality U$, is an exercise that helps students understand some of the “realities” involved in preparing for an employable future and adulthood. At FutureNow: Finance, students receive an adult scenario based on a survey they have completed prior to the event. The scenario includes: marital status, number of children, career field, and net monthly income (based on choice of career field and current GPA). At the FutureNow: Finance event, students will visit a variety of booths to “purchase” housing, transportation, communication services, child care, food, utilities, insurance, etc. They will also have the opportunity to save money, give to charity and learn about unexpected things that affect daily life (e.g. accidents, unexpected visitors, flat tires).
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Volunteers help the students make wise financial choices regarding the necessities and luxuries they imagine as part of their adult lifestyle. Volunteers are provided with detailed information and price sheets for their specific booth allowing them to help the students decide how best to spend their money. Volunteer need only bring their personal experiences! It is a fun and tangible way to aid students in preparing for their financial futures.
