The “Real Money, Real World” program is brought to Port Clinton’s Eighth Grade students through the Ottawa County OSU Extension office. This program includes a real life simulation of “adult” costs of things including housing, insurance, child care and food.
Students move through the various stations with their budget scenario learning important financial literacy skills. Along with the simulation, OSU Extension brought Ohio Means Jobs for career exploration. An agent from their office discussed interview skills with resume building, while Jordan Moore of Genoa Bank discussed future financials.
The Middle School is grateful for the numerous community volunteers that join in this event to help students through the Real Money, Real World simulation. Teachers Erica Laughlin and Kerry Fial help to coordinate the event.
