As part of the prepa- ration, Cavema Family Resource/Youth Service Centers and Barren/Hart County Extension Of- fice hosted a Reality Store at Caverna Middle/High Schools earlier this year. The goal of Reality Store is to help the students un- derstand the "reality" of their choices, now and in the future. As they con- sider their high school career, this activity helps them realize that the effort they put into their studies today could positively af- fect their futures of tomor- row. The students decide on their career during a pre-session, their salary is determined, and then they walk through'booths, add- ing up their life's expenses. The "egg of chance" ran- domly choose one of life's unexpected expenses: car problems, house repairs, health issues, etc. The fi- nancial analysis in the end is sometimes a surprise.:.. just like real life!
