Volunteers Needed: WHS Financial Reality Fair

Wissahickon High School is seeking 40 volunteers to support our Financial Reality Fair sponsored by TruMark Financial Credit Union. This event is an opportunity for every student in our junior class (300+) to learn budgeting basics – a critical and necessary life skill. During the Financial Reality Fair, students visit 14 different booths, manned by volunteers, to figure out their budgets for housing, utilities, transportation, clothing, and food - and some not-so-basics like technology, entertainment and travel.

No experience is necessary to volunteer! Your job is to support students in making realistic and informed financial decisions based on the salary that they will be assigned (e.g. “buying a BMW might not fit your budget”). 

When:                Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Where:              Wissahickon High School Round Gym (parking lot next to stadium)

Time:                  8:00 am to 1:30 pm (Breakfast & Lunch provided)

Volunteer orientation with TruMark Financial specialists will begin promptly at 8:00 am and you will be assigned a “station”. At 8:30, groups of about 40-50 students will begin rotating through the Fair.

Learn more by watching the video from our first Financial Reality Fair in 2019.

We hope you will consider volunteering and promise you it will be a fun and enlightening experience for everyone!
