Where: Virtual
 
In partnership with Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada Las Vegas Raiders Player, Alec Ingold has a secret that has helped him achieve not only great success on the football field, but also in his personal life. What many people don’t know is that Alec holds a degree in Finance from University of Wisconsin and is passionate about personal finance and football. His passion project for youth in Southern Nevada is the Money Mini Camp changing the trajectory of all students by partnering with Junior Achievement’s Finance Park program to ensure the next generation is prepared to be the leaders we need in Nevada.

Money Mini Camp shares important financial life skills and ties career pathways within the NFL exposing students to ways they can be part of the team that makes game day happen. Students learn about the career options and education expectations for job opportunities that exist with The Las Vegas Raiders while hearing
first-hand from Las Vegas Raiders players on how to career plan and manage their finances. JA’s Finance Park experience showcases these careers through its JA Finance Park Virtual simulation where students become an adult for the day through the assignment of a Las Vegas Raiders job, income, marital status, credit score, and even kids of their own! Students are tasked with having a balanced budget at the end of the simulation that is built over 26 different financial decisions/bills.
