Event Description

Mad City Money is a 3-hour hands-on simulation that gives teens a taste of the real world -  complete with career, salary, spouse, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. During the simulation, participants must select housing, transportation, food, clothing, child care - all while building their budget. They experience unexpected windfalls and unplanned expenses, just like in real life. They write checks and use debit cards for their purchases, and must balance both their checkbooks and their budgets.


During the simulation teens make independent choices, experience the consequences of poor decisions, find solutions and improve behaviors within a helpful learning environment. It gives them an experience most adults wish they had – the chance to do a “practice round” of life before doing the real thing.


Participation is open to teens ages 15-21. Registered participants will need to complete a one-hour online Pre-Event Training session prior to the Mad City Money event date.


The ticket fee reserves your participant's spot in the activity, and will be fully refunded when he/she checks in at the event. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis so tickets will go fast. Register your teen today!
