The Game of Life, Homeschool Style.

Let’s be adults for a whole semester (This will be like an expanded Enterprise Village – for life).

You and fellow classmates will start with a bank account with some money.

We will find the answers to each of the following:

How do I find a job? (And GET the job.)

Will I Pursue Higher education? Vocational school?

How do I find a place to live?

What do I do with my paycheck?

What’s a budget and how do I use one?

How do I pay the bills? (What bills do I have?)

How do I pay taxes?

Social security? (What is social security?)

Should I have a savings account? Why?

How much should I budget to spend with friends?

How do I know if I spent too much money for the month?

And many more questions.

Along the way we will encounter problems we need to solve.

You will learn several hacks so you can solve the problems yourself (making you more independent).

There needs to be a minimum of 6 people attending this class to make it happen.

Each person will need to bring a spiral notebook, a folder for papers and pen/pencil.

(The notebook can have folders inside. This is preferred so as to keep everything together.)

You also need to bring some sort of calculator.

Each week we will have some sort of food/snack in class. This will be decided by the class and each week a different student will be responsible for bringing it in.

There will be 1-2 days of classes I won’t be able to attend. I will most likely have a substitute. The cost of the class reflects the missing class(es).

Cost of class.
