If You Missed the 2018 Community-Up CRA Conference, You Missed Something Special
Junior Achievement Financial Literacy Service
It is always a great time when you can spend the day with teenagers teaching them about the cost of "Adulthood". And there is no better place to teach this lesson than Quicken Loans Junior Achievement Finance Park. The kids learn how to manage their finances, pay their rent or mortgage, buy a car or use public transportation, pay utilities, shop for the best priced insurance, go on vacation, buy their kids clothes and so on and so on.
The fun part is listening to a large group of teenagers that are trying to figure out how to get to work and they are a single dad and they can't afford daycare or they are a married couple with children and one on the way and they have to upsize their automobile and budget accordingly.
The kids always enjoy the experience and they walk away from it with a new-found respect for Mom and Dad. I'm sure they give extra tight hugs to their parents that night at home as they are reminded of how thankful they are because someone else is paying the bills. :)
