    Teachers We’d love to partner with you to share our It’s A Money Thing curriculum in your classroom.  Mad City Money events are designed for high school and college students. Our one-day immersive in-classroom program teaches excellent life skills that will help students navigate their personal finances.

    Program Highlights:

    • Students live for the day as their 26-year-old self. They have a career, a family, and most importantly bills and living expenses.
    • As students visit each station, they quickly realize the importance of a budget, and have to make decisions so that they can afford everything needed when you live on your own.
    • Mad City Money is a unique and eye-opening experience for students.
    • Compliments our It’s A Money Thing Academy, which is our web-based learning platform.
    • Perfect for 50-100 students per day.
