Nearly 40 students from Roseville High School’s Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program got a “bite of reality” May 8 when they attended an interactive financial education simulation designed to teach them how to manage money—a program hosted by Patelco CU, which has several branches throughout the Sacramento-area. It was offered by the Richard Myles Johnson (RMJ) Foundation. The event, which aims to teach young people the basics of finance in a fun way, was run by employee volunteers from Patelco and First U.S. Community CU.
Patelco CU Gen Y Manager Veronica Dangerfield—serving as the “Fickle Finger of Fate” and doling out unexpected windfalls or expenses—targets a Roseville High School student participating in the Bite of Reality program.
