CU 4 Reality Fair

High School Financial Literacy Fair

Sponsored by the Westerly Community Credit Union, the CU 4 Reality Financial Literacy Fair is an event that gives High School students a chance to see how career selection impacts their financial well-being and their life choices. Students create a spending plan based on a salary and career they have researched, and then juggle needs-versus-wants to make sure they are living within their means.

At the fair, students meet with representatives from local auto dealerships, insurance agents, lenders, utility providers, retailers and others, to help them understand the real expenses they will face in adulthood and the choices they will need to make to avoid falling into debt. 

Westerly Community Credit Union sponsors the following CU 4 Reality Fairs:

  • Westerly and Chariho High School CU 4 Reality Fair
  • Narragansett High School CU 4 Reality Fair
