Mad City Money simulation kit

Mad City MoneyTM is a 2½-hour hands-on simulation that appeals to youth and gives them a taste of the real world—complete with occupation, salary, spouse, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments.

This simulation now uses debit cards instead of checks to reflect how youth make purchases today.

Mad City Money allows participants to make mistakes—and suffer the consequences of their decisions—in a realistic, but safe, environment. Most participants are surprised to learn “I can’t have a big house and a new truck on my salary and still pay for day care and groceries.” Once the shock wears off, they reevaluate choices and manage their money effectively.

True to life, Fate visits each participant during the session delivering a windfall check or an unexpected bill.

Once students have had their eyes opened by this simulation, the Can I Make It on My Own? student guide can be used to encourage teenagers to plan and budget for adult independence.
