POSTPONED: Economy, Jr. @ Kids Poetry Basketball (Bryan YMCA) 7/10

This event has been postponed to a new date, location, and time to be announced soon.
PUBLIC EVENT – On Thursday, July 10th from 1-3pm, participants of the Kids Poetry Basketball program at Bryan YMCA in Downtown Greensboro will be playing “Economy, Jr.” where players gain insight into both sides of the economic coin by having them choose at the start of the game whether they want to play as a customer spending a month’s paycheck from their chosen career on necessities such as housing, groceries, child care, and more or as a merchant running a business needing to make enough sales to cover this month’s overhead.

c37 words is sponsoring the event with the Greensboro Asset Building Coalition helping organize the event.
