Event Description:
Seeking Volunteers for "Keeping It Real" Program at Calera High School.

Calera High School freshman will get a perspective of what it cost to live in the adult world when the Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce brings its ShelbyOne Initiative program "Keeping it Real" to the school on November 8th and 9th.

The first day students learn the difference between gross and net income and the importance of budgeting.

The second day students visit 12 stations with their income worksheets to pay bills that corresponded with expenses. Volunteers are needed on the second day only.

The program is co-sponsored by The UPS Store Caldwell Mill Road and Eco Credit Union.

Keyla Handley, Community and Investor Development Director, is seeking volunteers for 1/2 - one day on Friday, November 9th. Volunteers will manage a station (Ex: housing, groceries, clothing, insurance, education, child care, etc.) to assist 9th grade students as they "pay bills" and make "life choices" based on a random-assigned life scenario.

If you are interested in being a volunteer for a few hours or the day, please register now or call 663-4542 or email Keyla.

Volunteers would arrive at Calera High School as early as 7:30AM and the program would conclude by 3:00PM. Lunch is provided for all volunteers.
