Volunteers needed for youth project

“Let's Get Real!” is a community project to support financial literary, which is scheduled to take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at Woodrow Wilson Middle School.

The event is an interactive, hands-on, real-life simulation to provide eighth graders in Vigo County middle schools with the opportunity to explore career choices and make lifestyle and budget decisions similar to those adults face on a daily basis.

Each student participating assumes he or she are a 28-year-old adult with no financial assistance from home.

Careers are drawn at random and include a variety of community occupations, ranging from teachers, attorneys, office workers and trash collectors to engineers and doctors.

Students proceed through several stations including housing, taxes, transportation, child care and entertainment.

Volunteers are needed to assist the students as they visit the various stations, “paying” their monthly expenses and balancing check registers. Those interested in helping with this event can register online at

wabashvalley/lets-get-real/. Full- and half-day options are available.
