On July 23, McCoy partnered with the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) to conduct real life budget simulations
for Financial Education Day at the Children’s Safety Village of Central Florida. Work books aided the YEP teams in
calculating their disposable income and they were given “cash” to pay expenses. Seeing the physical money dwindle
taught the importance of preparing financially for goals, expenses and life’s unexpected challenges.
