Financial reality fair to be held March 22

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Workforce Alliance (ACWA) is hosting a Financial Reality Fair on Tuesday, March 22, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., at the Hannaford Career Center in Middlebury.

The fair is targeted for high school juniors and seniors, but is open to any 15- to 24-year-old community members who would like to learn about real-life budgeting and making lifestyle choices.

In this festive atmosphere, participants will “play the game of life” by picking a career and learning how much it pays — and the cost of required training and education for that career. They will then move through several lifestyle choices to build a monthly budget and get a sense of the associated financial realities.

Along the way participants will be guided and advised by ACWA partners and volunteers to consider resources and options that will support their unique path to success. People will leave with a fresh perspective, some solid next steps, and a take-out meal courtesy of the Hannaford Career Center’s café, The Onion.

The Financial Reality Fair is free to attend. The Career Center, which serves people throughout Addison County, is located at 51 Charles Ave. next to Middlebury Union High School.

Everyone in Addison County is asked share this news with students, friends and colleagues who are looking for a fun opportunity to explore career pathways and learn about personal budgeting.
