Interactive personal finance learning events for high school students

In futuristic Mad City, high school students take on the role of an adult. They're given jobs, income, a family and debt. The challenge?

Visit merchants to select housing, transportation, food, household necessities, clothing, child care and other wants and needs while building a budget. There is a credit union in town too, to offer advice about saving and loan options.

Mad City Money allows participants to make mistakes - and learn the consequences of their decisions - in a realistic, but safe, environment.

We facilitate Mad City Money events at select schools and organizations in Southern California throughout East Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley; and in Southern Nevada throughout Las Vegas and Henderson.

Now scheduling Mad City Money event dates for 2020 Spring semester!
