The Richard Myles Johnson Foundation – the state credit union foundation for California and Nevada – provides resources for credit unions in their youth financial education efforts.
Bite of Reality – the RMJ Foundation's signature program – is a fun, interactive simulation for teenagers. They are tasked with taking on the role of an adult for a day and must make purchasing decisions based on their assigned income.
The CNYIN is comprised of credit union professionals who provide youth financial education as part of their jobs. They provide resources to fellow youth educators, and partner with the RMJ Foundation on delivering Bite of Reality.
