Sponsored by Riverside Community Credit Union, the program starts with a pre-test, called Life Scenarios, that takes the participant through a group of life financial situations such as budgets, insurance, debt, and rent.

 Learning comes through computer games and a post-test. The Life Scenarios are age-appropriate for 4th—12th grades.
