The North Dakota Jump$tart Coalition will be hosting their first annual “Real World” camp for kids on Monday, March 12, 2012 for the first responding 150 sixth graders in the Bismarck-Mandan and surrounding areas at the Bismarck Public Schools Career Academy . They will also be hosting the camp in Fargo on May 15. This all day event will challenge children to tackle the financial responsibilities of “grown ups”. This event can only happen with the support of community leaders who believe in the importance of financial literacy to the children of our community.
They are looking for business sponsors and volunteers for the events. They are also looking for community leaders to participate as a business in the “Real World” city. The children will have a budget sheet with various expenses and income they receive. They need businesses to share what they do with the children and assist with their situations that occur. They are looking for businesses such as Automotive, EMT, Food, Entertainment, Finance, Utilities, Healthcare, Daycare, Clothing, Education and Charity.
Volunteers will be needed primarily though-out the event from 8 am – 5 pm and the participating “Real World” businesses that would only be needed from 12-4pm.
