At UPFCU, Financial Education is a Top Priority
From educating our youth to free financial counseling, we’re here to help shape a more financially savvy community.
To help prepare our youth for adulthood, UPFCU hosts Reality Fairs to provide students the tools necessary to budget for their futures. This fun and interactive program is a hands-on simulation allowing students to experience financial challenges they will face as they begin navigating life in the real world. The goal is to empower them with information and decision-making skills necessary to achieve financial freedom.
Each student is assigned a career, starting salary and budget sheet. Then they simulate setting up their personal household: renting an apartment and setting up utilities, financing a car, allowing for the purchase of clothing and food, buying a television, etc.
