High School: Test Drive….Next Stop Reality

Aug 30 2017 | Written By Jennifer McHugh | Director of Public Affairs and Financial Education

Can I make it living on my own for one month? This is the challenge posed to high school students who participate in Royal Credit Union’s Test Drive….Next Stop Reality. The program provides students with a simulation of real life when it comes to money and finances. Students in Barron County, WI and Eden Prairie, MN participate in Test Drive….Next Stop Reality.  Partial funding for the Eden Prairie program was provided by the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation.

Find out what this “drive” is like from two Eden Prairie High School students who’ve been through it, an EPHS teacher who fully supports the program and Royal’s community financial education coordinator.
