This 3½-hour simulation gave young adults the opportunity to make decisions about budgeting, spending, and saving in an assigned-life scenario. To get a sense of adulthood with income and bills to pay, each participant was given a temporary identity, including: an occupation, salary, debt, marital status, children, and so on.

The goal was ultimately to simulate the realities of approaching financial responsibilities and teach the tools to make better financial decisions.
