Cleveland STEP Students Get a Taste of Adulthood with Huntington Bank Reality Days


For November's Cleveland STEP session, Steve C. Harmon, Community Engagement Manager with Huntington Bank, introduced Huntington Bank Reality Days.

This program introduced the students to everyday financial decisions through career exploration, financial education, and the hands-on experience of making monthly budgeting decisions during a game of life simulation.

Mr. Harmon taught Cleveland STEP students about the significance of sound money management, balanced budgeting, and good credit. Students were able to better understand how their everyday decisions would impact their lives and the necessity of prioritizing needs over wants. This remarkable presentation was the ultimate reality check into the wonderful world of adulthood.
