Volunteers Needed: Help Finley Students through the Game of Life! (Photo) - 01/04/18

FINLEY, WA -- Remember the Game of LIFE? Seniors at River View High School in Finley are preparing for a live Financial Reality Fair hosted by Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU) on Thursday, January 11, and the school is looking for a few more volunteers to make it happen.

During this educational and interactive Reality Fair game, students are given scenarios that place them in a hypothetical future where they must make financial decisions based on a variety of factors. Each senior is assigned a particular post-secondary education level, career, and income level. Students move from table to table (manned by volunteers) to make purchasing decisions on food, housing, luxuries and more. Should they eat in or dine out? How much furniture do they really need in that new apartment? What's left after the student loan payment?

RVHS teacher, Jennifer Ward, is collaborating with WSECU Community Relations Coordinator, Josh Bergman, to coordinate the event.

"We're anticipating about 50 students to work their way through this amazing learning experience, so we're asking our awesome community to help support us by volunteering at the tables," Mrs. Ward requested.

All volunteers will receive a brief training beginning at 8:50 AM on the morning of the event. Adults 18 and older are asked to contact Mrs. Ward at the high school if they are interested in assisting students through the stations. The Financial Reality Fair will take place from 9:20-10:50 AM on January 11 at the Finley Community Center Gym, which is located next to the middle school at 37208 S Finley Rd, Kennewick, WA 99337.

For more information, contact RVHS teacher, Jennifer Ward, at jward@finleysd.org.
