Odyssey Plays LIFE

Last Wednesday, YMC's Game of LIFE was played for the first time by the Odyssey program. The activity was adapted from a popular board game. Mentors helped their mentee travel through LIFE as they made choices like starting with college or career and whether to buy new rims or new tires. With YMC paper money, mentors, who volunteered as bankers, helped the players move from station to station as they landed on various spaces. The activity also moved players through the unexpected possibilities in life and raised great discussion topics about school, careers, rent, family, children, money, and housing. Through its glitches of being the first YMC Game of LIFE played, the session was full of fun and group involvement.
