YouthBuild Enters the Real World
YouthBuild students participated in the Real World, a one-day simulation held at Camp Cale in Hertford, NC. Real World provided YouthBuild students hands-on practice learning around areas of fiscal decision-making pertaining to education, careers, and lifestyle choices in the adult world.
With the help of community partners, students were able to learn more about:
· Information about renting
· Health insurance
· Connection between higher education and higher earning
· Negotiating a budget
The students thoroughly enjoyed the seminar and departed Camp Cale with new knowledge to aid them in the real world.
