Presentations

A+FCU employees are available to teach students of all ages various financial topics, including managing money, setting goals, the basics of banking, understanding credit, and more, with engaging presentations, games, and books.

Our activities are designed to meet the TEKS requirements and are available for a wide variety of grades, class sizes, and settings at no cost.

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.
