Resources for Teaching: MoneyAndStuff.info

Finances 101: Walk the Walk, Talk the Talk

For years, the Northwest Chapter’s "Finances 101: Walk the Walk, Talk the Talk" reality event has changed the lives of hundreds of local high school students.

Now, the free financial education game is available online to teach students about the money demands of the real world. Accessible worldwide, online players can manage a virtual checkbook, navigate “cause-and-effect” scenarios, and experience first-hand the impact their choices have on their financial situations.

Credit unions and chapters can also borrow the in-person game pieces and sets from the Northwest Chapter.
