Claim Your Future® encourages students to explore education after high school, future careers, and money management. This game helps students begin to understand the strong connection between the choices they make today and their opportunities in the future.
Since its launch in 2015, Claim Your Future has been played in over 90 countries, and thousands of students representing all 50 states have played Claim Your Future online. Claim Your Future is brought to you for free by American Student Assistance® (ASA).
Claim Your Future can be played with a wide range of audiences, from elementary-age students through middle school, high school, and beyond. Educators can utilize the game as a one-time workshop activity, an after-school activity, or as part of a larger unit on careers, higher education, and money management.
To play the game, students are assigned a unique wheel, representing a specific career, college degree, and monthly income. Educators then discuss these options with their students, leading them through a monthly budget activity.
Claim Your Future can also be played online. With this version of the game, students choose from 125 unique careers and navigate different spending decisions. They learn career descriptions and key vocabulary, and see a visual representation of how the choices they make affect their money.
ASA® helps kids know themselves, know their options, and make informed choices to achieve their education and career goals. By providing Claim Your Future, ASA gives students the information they need to develop a clear plan for their future.
The education team at ASA is also available to support you as you implement Claim Your Future and can conduct training sessions. If you have additional questions or want to schedule a Claim Your Future session at your institution, please contact us.
