An Albuquerque credit union is teaching young adults how to handle financial challenges.
Tuesday, Rio Grande Credit Union hosted a “Financial Reality Fair” at the CNM Montoya Campus.
Students were given a career and starting salary, and were instructed to make life choices while staying within their budget.
“It’s really about teaching students about real life…to show them that they’re going to have a monthly car payment, or you’re going to have maybe a baby,” said Rebecca Pierre, Rio Grande Credit Union.
Local high schools also participated in the event.
