one of the most enlightening ways for high school students to learn about the
real world relationship of education and career opportunities, lifestyle
choices and monthly budgets? The Chamber’s
Workforce Development Council believes that it is the Reality Store!
Reality Store is a hands-on interactive
educational experience that will be presented to all area eighth grade students
on November 19, 2014 at the Frankfort Convention Center.
Similarly to the
game of “Life”, each student will receive an assigned occupation and monthly
income based on their grade performance in school. They then proceed through the Reality Store –
booths manned by business community volunteers that represent everything from
housing choices to taxes. In each
instance, the student must make a choice and reduce the corresponding cost from
their income. The point of the
simulation game is to make choices that fit within the assigned income…. and
allow for unexpected expenses!
are needed in the following areas:
Uncle Sam Health
& Beauty Luxury Items/Travel
Housing Clothing & Grocery Supplemental Income
Furniture Utilities & Communications
Reality Store day begins at 8:00 a.m. with breakfast for our volunteers and
ends at 3:00 p.m. Students will be
arriving by bus throughout the day. Both
morning and afternoon volunteer slots are available at this time. If you would like to get in on this exciting
experience, please call the Chamber
