Mad City Money
Mad City Money is a 2-3 hour hands-on simulation that gives middle and high school students a taste of the real world—complete with occupation, spouse, debt, and medical insurance payments. Participants can make mistakes—and suffer the consequences of their decisions—in a realistic, but safe, environment.
The Mad City Money program requires advance notice and works best with large audiences.
Since 1998, we’ve partnered with elementary and middle schools across Central Texas to teach kids key money management skills, like saving. For this program, we work closely with school staff to deliver presentations, volunteer at events, and more.
