Bite of Reality is a two hour, hands-on simulation that appeals to teens/adults while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities. Participants are given a fictional occupation, salary, spouse and family, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. They then walk around to various table-top stations to “purchase” housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, day care, and other needs. This interactive activity will teach participants how to make financial decisions and live on a budget. They will have to deal with a pushy “car salesperson” and a commission-based “realtor,” and weigh their wants versus their needs. There’s even a “Fickle Finger of Fate” that will give some of the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls”—just like in real life. Fortunately, the game also includes a “credit union” to help with their financial needs.

  • VOLUNTEERS (20) ARE NEEDED TO STAFF THE TABLE TOP STATIONS! This FREE event is open to anyone age 16+. You need a smart phone to keep up with your budget.

  • January 29, 2018 (3PM) and July 6, 2018 (1PM)

  • Location: 4625 44th Street (Auditorium), Sacramento, CA 95820

  • For information or to volunteer send an email info@celiinc.org or call 916-496-7764.
