SELCO Community Credit Union aims to empower children with key financial education skills in a fun and interactive way with the first ever SELCO Presents: Get A Life! game night. The free event is scheduled for Friday, July 26, from 6-7:30 p.m. at Friendly House’s Community Night.
Hosted by Leasa Wilkens, manager of SELCO’s Forest Park branch, and Angela Laurie, the Forest Park branch’s assistant manager, Get a Life! is a new game that promotes saving, budgeting, and distinguishing between “needs” and “wants.” Inspired by The Game of Life, Get a Life! puts abstract concepts into practice in a fun setting, offering trial-and-error education without real-world risk.
SELCO Presents: Get A Life! will be held at Friendly House in Northwest Portland and is open to children age 9 to 14. It is free to attend.
