Medford, Ore — It’s something many of us wish we had in grade school, a fun park to walk us through how to be an adult.
150 eighth graders from Hedrick Middle School were assigned an ‘adult’ life with a job, a mortgage and car payments using a specialized iPad app.
The seminar, organized by Junior Achievement of Jackson and Josephine County challenges kids to budget for the unexpected.
“This opportunity for 8th grade students is amazing, they are able to learn early and maybe avoid some of the pitfalls later in life,” said Junior Achievement District Director Deanna Wilson.
The seminar continues tomorrow through Wednesday April 12th at Central Medford High School.
