Mad City Money – Southern California

Mad City Money – Southern California


Mad City Money is an hands-on learning activity that teaches teens the value of money. Participants are assigned a life scenario complete with career, income, debt and insurance payments… Even a spouse/partner and child. Their challenge is to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, child care needs and other necessities without running out of money. It’s the financial “wake-up call” every teen needs!
