BPW/Raleigh is proud to sponsor Reality StoreSM, a curriculum for middle school students. Offered in a game format, students learn the “reality” of a monthly family budget and the value of making appropriate choices in planning for career, family and their education.

This year we are presenting Reality Store at two locations:
- Shepard Middle School in Durham February 20
- Moore Square Middle School in Raleigh March 7
Realty Store is a simulation game in which students identify their career interests, research a specific career, and receive a mock checkbook with the monthly income entered for the specific career. Students then visit booths manned by community members at which they pay their monthly bills. Click here for more.
How it works: 2 volunteers are assigned at each of 10 stations. Their job is to guide students in making choices and helping them to make adjustments to their check register. Prior experience with Reality Store is not necessary. It is an easy job and so rewarding.
