Seeking Volunteers for "Keeping It Real" Program at Vincent High School
Vincent High School freshman will get a perspective of what it cost to live in the adult world when The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce brings its ShelbyOne Initiative program "Keeping it Real" to the school on February 20th and 21st.
The first day students learn the difference between gross and net income and the importance of budgeting. (No volunteers needed on day one.)
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 sponsored by Thompson Tractor and co-sponsored by The UPS Store Caldwell Mill Road, AT&T and America's First Federal Credit Union.
Pari Barzegari, Manager of Community & Career Development, is seeking volunteers on February 21st. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers would arrive at Vincent High School as early as 7:30AM and the program would conclude by 3:00PM. Lunch is provided for all volunteers.
