Westerly Community CU is Sponsoring CU4Reality Fair for Local High School Students

Students from Chariho High School in Wood River Junction, Rhode Island, and Narragansett High School in Narragansett, Rhode Island will be learning the reality of their financial choices and making real-life decisions to help teach them financial skills during the CU4Reality Financial Literacy Fairs on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019. 
 
Sponsored by Westerly Community Credit Union, the CU4Reality Financial Literacy Fairs are an event that will give students a chance to see how career selection impacts their financial well-being and their life choices.  Students will create a spending plan based on a salary and career they have already researched, and juggle needs-versus-wants to make sure they are living within their means. Students will then meet with representatives from local auto dealerships, insurance agents, retailers and others, to help them understand the real expenses they will face in adulthood and the choices they’ll need to make to avoid falling into debt.   
 
‘We are so proud to be offering the CU4Reality Fair again this year’, stated Steve White, Westerly Community Credit Union President and CEO. ‘Over the last 8 years, we have helped over 1600 Chariho, Narragansett, and Westerly High School students experience a small dose of reality as to how their financial decisions can impact their lives. Our hope is to continue to share our financial literacy programs with many more students for years to come, as well as expand to additional High Schools in our neighboring communities.’ 
 
The CU4 Reality™ Financial Education Program was created by a coalition of credit unions through America’s Credit Union Museum.
