What Is Mad City Money?

Mad City Money™ gives youth a taste of the real world - complete with occupation, salary, spouse, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. Students gain practical experience in developing and maintaining a budget as they balance income and expenses, empowering them to be proactive about their financial future.  The curriculum can be offered in two formats: a two-hour hands-on simulation or a workshop designed for classroom delivery.
