Are you interested in learning more about financial literacy?
Want to practice budgeting and making sound financial decisions as an adult in Connecticut?
Breadwinner was created with the purpose of teaching others about how to manage your money in the Connecticut workforce. The hope is to get teenagers and young adults to practice budgeting and understand what goes into a singular month of living. You begin with finding an occupation and learn how much of your gross income you take home after taxes. All the data is based off of starting salaries in each occupation. From there you work through housing, utilities, and various expenses in the life of an adult. Test your ability to budget and learn what you value the most when making financial decisions.
The Breadwinner game app is in its testing phase and its creators would appreciate your feedback. UConn Extension financial literacy program is working on improvements and how to adjust the game to fit the needs of its target audience. If you play along and find areas of improvement or have suggestions for what to include, add them to the survey at the end. Play the game through the end and click the “Please help us improve the game” on the final results page to fill out the survey.
