RHS Students Learn Financial Literacy

Volunteers at Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan are helping students at Romulus High School become better prepared for real life. Nearly 100 RHS students recently went on a field trip to the JA Finance Park in downtown Detroit. During the visit students learned about money management, entrepreneurship, and how to balance a real world budget. Students took part in a simulation where they were assigned to a hypothetical life scenario that included a profession and a mock family. RHS Senior Melodi Brown who will attend Concordia University-Chicago in the fall said, “This experience has taught me how to realistically budget my money as I prepare for adulthood”.  The hands-on approach provides a foundation for students to make intelligent lifelong personal finance decisions.
