Seeking Volunteers for Reality Store

The Wayne County Extension Office will host several Reality Store program sites this spring. They include:

  • CK Middle 8th Grade - April 16 (8 a.m. - 1 p.m.)
  • Fort Gay Middle 8th Grade - May 15 (8 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.)
  • Vinson Middle 7th & 8th Grades - June 5 (8 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.)

Reality Store is a financial simulation that allows youth to improve their understanding of "real life" or the monthly expenses and bills that occur an average household. Our office is seeking volunteers to manage one of the nearly 20 stations that students visit during the simulation.

These stations include transportation, housing, insurance, child care, etc., to name several. Our office provides all the station information, along with pencils, calculators and training to help you fully understand the program and your responsibilities. Interested volunteers should email Julie Tritz or call 304-272-6839.
