Real World Challenge
The Winifred Crawford Dibert Boys & Girls Club of Jamestown will be hosting the 2nd Annual Real World Challenge on Saturday March 18, 2017 from 9:30-2:00 at the Club’s 62 Allen St., Jamestown facility. The challenge is designed for teens in groups of 3. If you don’t have a group of three, we can help create your team the day of the event.
The challenge is an extension of the national Boys & Girls Club of America program Money Matters. Teens will begin by “choosing” a career path and then participating in a brief introduction to financial management and budgeting. Then everyone will “live” through one month of financial decisions by visiting various stations to make choices about such things as food, clothing, entertainment and child care. Community members and Club board members will be at the stations to offer guidance.
The event is free and open to teens in the community. Participants do not have to be a Club member. Youth groups, teams and other organizations are welcome to attend. A free light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, singles and couples.
Pre-registration by March 14 is needed to plan for food and supplies. For more information, please call the Club at 664-2902 and ask for Juli or Dianne.
