Mid American Credit Union- Supporting Financial Literacy!
December 7, 2020
Recently, our supporters at Mid-American Credit Union made a generous donation to The Pando Initiative in support of our financial literacy program Reality U. Now more than ever, it is crucial to educate our leaders of tomorrow on personal finance skills that they can use in high school and beyond.
We are beyond thankful to MACU for their partnership. For several years now, Mid-American Credit Union has continually provided a volunteer for each local Reality U session. Although, we are not currently hosting any local session due to schools working remotely, we appreciate them being engaged and continuing to support financial literacy.
This fun and interactive simulation gives students a glimpse into what life could look like as a 26-year-old. Each scenario includes a monthly income, credit card debt, as well as their marital and family status.
This event empowers students to make the connection of how their performance in school TODAY, impacts their future. Reality U is a continued success because of our volunteers, and financial supporters! Each full day of Reality U requires 96 volunteers that work with students at 12 booths representing services and/or products that adults typically must purchase or consider each month.
Each session provides an eye-opening experience for students, staff and volunteers, and continues to grow due to community backing and leadership of our Reality U director, Patrick Sehl.
Thank you for all that you do for The Pando Initiative through funding, mentorship and more! We are thankful to have the support of community partners like you and look forward to when we can have local sessions and see you all again soon. We appreciate your commitment to our programs and the kids that we have the opportunity to work with.
