Reality Store _ Austin High School

Store Volunteers Needed for Austin High School, March 31st: 8am – 2:30pm
Scott County students will get a taste of the “real world” soon and we need your help to make this happen! The Scott County Partnership is recruiting adult volunteer leaders in the community to represent businesses and organizations at booths that the students will be visiting during the “real world” exercise. During the events, students from Austin High School and Scottsburg Middle School are given an occupation and a budget. Each student is assigned a different scenario, such as whether or not they have a college education, their occupation, their marital status, or whether they have kids or pets. Then the students visit booths, which represent various expenses, such as housing, food, clothing, mortgages, utilities, banking, insurance, etc. Many local businesses and organizations provide their expertise by taking part in the event.
According to the Scott County Economic Development Corporation, the Reality Store is meant to teach students about how the decisions they make now will affect the rest of their lives. Anita Campbell Walker says the event is often an eye-opener for students. Many of the students are expected to report what they’ve learned to their classes. The annual Reality Store event will take place at Austin High School on March 31st from 8am – 2:30pm and at Scottsburg Middle School on May 19th from 8am – 2:30pm.
Those interested in volunteering their time for this worthy cause should contact Ace Woodson at (812) 722-7708 or email ace.woodson@scottcountypartnership.org as soon as possible.
