Financial Fitness Fair

Mount View High School was proud to welcome Maine State Credit Unions on October 17th. Maine credit unions present a half-day event that targets high school juniors and seniors and is similar to the game of "LIFE," where participating students are given a career and monthly income and then have to visit booths associated with various expenses that the average adult is faced with each month.  Costs, such as transportation, housing, clothing, food, student loans, insurance and several other everyday expenses, are filled in on a monthly budget form by each student.  At the end of the event, the goal is for students to have a monthly budget that does not exceed monthly income.
