On this podcast, we’re revisiting Reality Fairs, which is an interactive financial literacy experience for high school students. The Pennsylvania CU Foundation recently tailored the fair model and used it for people re-entering society from the state’s correctional system.
To learn more, we talk with Kathleen Fey, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania CU Foundation. You’ll hear how this event became a true collaborative effort among area credit unions to help former inmates become successful in the next phase of their lives.
“I think we were able to make a huge impact because people were able to leave with really concrete, good advice about what steps they needed to take to be successful and maybe not go down the wrong path.” – Kathleen Fey
