Remember your first paycheck? How shocking it was to see the deductions? How little was left after paying rent?
Or what about the cost to insure that first car you bought?
Welcome to MHC Real World – a simulated life experience. Think of it as a crash course in adulting, a daylong adventure designed to give teens a taste of what it’s like to be all grown up. But not just any teens. These are kids who, for the most part, will be leaping into adulthood without the luxury of a family safety net. For them, the day is an eye-opening experience.
MHC Real World is September 28, 9am to 4pm, at St. Marks United Methodist Church in Raleigh.
- If you want to help, we are collecting gift cards for Real World participants.
- Enrollment for kids, ages 15-18, is open now through September 14.
