What is Money Mission?
Money Mission is an online simulation
brought to you by WESTconsin Credit Union that teaches real life
financial skills. Teens create an avatar and live, work and make real life
financial decisions in the game's simulated village, Mission Heights. Money
Mission gives young adults an opportunity to consider the financial obligations
they face and how they will deal with them in real life.
How long is the game?
During the 16-week session,
players are encouraged to make a wide range of decisions, including buying a
car, trading stocks and holding down a job. The choices players make are tied to
their avatar’s happiness meter, a barometer designed to demonstrate how good
financial decisions require life balance. Those who navigate this simulated
world successfully will have a chance to win a state-level scholarship.
