Massasoit Community College to Hold 11th Annual Credit for Life Fair for Brockton Area Youth
on Thursday, April 28, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
April 11, 2011
BROCKTON – April 11, 2011 – Massasoit Community College will host its 11th Annual Credit for Life Fair for 200 Brockton High School Seniors,
and additional youth from YouthBuild and MYTURN. The event will be held in the Asiaf Field House on the Brockton campus on Thursday, April 28, 2011
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Credit for Life Fair is a financial education opportunity for high school students.  In this exercise students spend a semester learning the basics
of personal finance. The semester’s lesson culminates with students participating in an interactive fair or game in which they are given a salary and
must visit vendors to decide what lifestyle choices their budget allows them. At the end of the exercise they sit down with financial advisors who go
over their choices and help them understand the repercussions.

Caution with Credit and Massachusetts State Treasury has commended Massasoit Community College and all the schools that have instituted these fairs.
It is a wonderful collaboration of local government, schools, and business people.

Representatives from over 25 area businesses donate their time to help students learn about budgeting, finances, and credit.
