DICKINSON, Texas (October 14, 2010) – Employees from AMOCO Federal Credit Union participated in Dickinson High School’s Reality Town Simulation on Wednesday, October 13. Reality Town is an educational program that gives realistic financial experience to middle and high school students.

Reality Town teaches these often times overlooked lessons of life to students. It is a hands on simulation in which students learn real-life financial concepts such as budgeting, check writing, debit and savings accounts. The program teaches the value of education and its effect on potential earnings. Students take on careers, salaries, families and the associated financial responsibilities of the adult world including taxes, groceries, housing and transportation. AMOCO employees volunteered to work the Financial Counseling booth where more than 700 ninth grade students could visit to receive guidance on their choices.
