After a three-year hiatus, ‘Reality Check’ is making its return to Moose Jaw. 

‘Reality Check’ is a financial literacy program taking place on Oct. 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the Sask. Polytechnic Gymnasium. All Grade 9 students in Moose Jaw are participating.   

The Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce is looking for any parents or people who are willing to volunteer for the event. 

“If we don’t have volunteers, we’re not able to pull this off,” says Chamber of Commerce Office Administrator, Heather Bergdahl. 

“We have about 500 (Grade 9) students between all the high schools in the city and we definitely need a lot of hands-on-deck to make sure students go through the booths smoothly... You don’t have to be an expert on anything. I’ll be giving out lists with all the details and instructions about the booths, and what to do with the students.” 

Students will go through a virtual monthly invoice and learn about the importance and struggles of financial literacy. They will also get an opportunity to manage their payments and build a small foundation for their monetary management. 

For anyone interested in volunteering, please contact Heather at (306) 692-6414.
