You are earning money and have bills to pay. You have to select housing, transportation, insurance, food, clothing and other wants and needs. There are lots of choices to make. Welcome to LYFE!

That’s what participants will face when they come to a LYFE simulation at Green Oaks on Monday, May 7th and Tuesday, May 8th. LYFE is a unique and fun way to teach teens about money management. Please join us as a volunteer at this eye opening experience sponsored by the LSU AgCenter- Caddo 4-H.  Volunteers are requested to “sell” products and services at merchant stations. Everything you need will be provided and the role you will play and the options the participants will select from at your station will be sent to you one week before the simulation.

A short volunteer training session will be conducted immediately prior to the simulation.

LYFE simulation details are as follows:
Date: Monday, May 7th, 2018, 7:15 am – 2:00 pm (Girls) and
           Tuesday, May 8th, 2018, 8:15 am – 3:00 pm (Boys)
