Financial Literacy for Youth
Teaching youth what they need to know to FLY.
2017 Financial Literacy Summer Camp for High School Students
Registration: Waitlist Open
There is no fee for the program; it is sponsored by local businesses.
Our Financial Literacy for Youth, or FLY, sessions focus on teaching students about personal financial responsibility.
- Money Management: control your cash flow -- students learn how to manage personal spending to meet financial goals, and strategies to minimize the impact of financial obstacles.
- Use, Don’t Abuse -- Activities guide students to take responsibility for their own borrowing habits and establish behaviors that will improve the likelihood of credit approval and mindful use of credit.
- Earning Power: More than a Paycheck --Students learn that planning for their future success is the most important investment they can make. They explore how career choices impact earning potential, and consider their own marketable skills and interests.
- Investing: Money Working for You -- Teens learn how to put personal assets to work to build personal wealth. The activities in this module are designed to help students examine investing options and strategies so they can start reaping the benefits of accumulating assets and investing at an early age.
