The reality store will be held the morning of Monday, April 16 prior to the start of the conference. It will take place at a school in the Bloomington-Normal area. Further information will be available soon!
The Reality Store is a financial literacy event aimed at helping middle-school students begin to understand the importance of budgeting and money management by allowing them to role play as an adult with a pre-determined educational level, salary, and family size. It also helps impart to students the potential affect of a college education on their future prospects.
For the past several years, the Diversity Issues committee has worked with a school to host this event and ILASFAA volunteers from throughout the state converge to staff this great event! Details will be forthcoming soon.
