Mad City Money
As a part of our dedication to financial education, UTFCU conducts Mad City Money workshops for community and school groups upon member request.
Offered as a two hour hands-on simulation or a classroom workshop, Mad City Money gives youth a taste of the real world - complete with occupation, salary, spouse, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. They make mistakes - and suffer the consequences of their decisions - in a realistic, but safe, environment. Once the shock wears off, they reevaluate choices and manage their money effectively.
Mad City Money is approved as a financial education resource for students by the Jump$tart Clearinghouse, based on the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education.
