Students use role-playing exercises to portray adult characters living in diverse work and community settings, who are faced with real world situations. To help their characters succeed, students must learn how to use all of the 21st century work readiness and employability skills employers are seeking in new hires. These skills are vital to their own growth and development.
ccTheRealGame is the only program that teaches students financial literacy skills by role-playing adult characters dealing with real life financial challenges. They experience the feeling of having bills to pay and not enough money. And they feel the real satisfaction of working hard to earn enough to buy the things their adult character wants and needs to be happy.
Students who have played ccTheRealGame are more confident, optimistic and excited about their future. They are motivated to take career exploration and planning more seriously. After learning how their actions in the present impact their future options and success, students become more engaged with schoolwork, their families and their communities.
