The Reality Store gives community and parent volunteers the opportunity to guide high school Junior and Senior students through a financial budgeting process. The goal of this event is to help students learn basic skills in financial planning, goal setting, decision making, and career planning. Students examine their career expectations and finances while developed a more realistic idea of the financial impact their future decisions will have.

Bridging-the-Gap-02_03Youth Transitional Job Fair is an excellent opportunity for businesses to collect applications, interview, and even hire qualified youth to fill part-time, weekend, and summer employment needs.

Many of the youth that are screened for employment are involved in special education programs in the area. The students gain valuable interviewing skills, preparing them for current and future employment. This event is held in March of each year.
