The Real Deal: An interactive financial experience

Sometimes just telling teens about money and budgeting is not enough. We show them The Real Deal.

The Real Deal: Experience

[MUSIC PLAYING]

[PARENT] My child wants everything she sees on TV. Clothes, video games, not to mention the latest cell phone or tablet. How can my child learn the real deal when it comes to how much things cost?

[TEEN] My parents work, so they have money. They buy stuff all the time. If they work, why don't they have money to buy me stuff? What's their deal?

[NARRATOR] Sound familiar? Let LGFCU help you find the answers to those money questions and more at the Real Deal. This fun, hands-on event helps teens learn real life money skills. A credit union staff member will be available to answer their questions and yours. Visit LGFCU.org/realdeal to learn more and sign up.

An easy way for teens to learn about managing money

LGFCU’s The Real Deal is a fun way to help teens (grades 8-12) learn how much life really costs. Students learn to manage their money using real-life scenarios.

To kick off the day, the teens are given a detailed profile with income and occupation information. Based on that profile they shop for life’s everyday necessities like a car, home, mobile phone and more. They’ll have to make decisions on what to buy and what to do without — just like real adults!
