Jared's Financial Literacy series for families and youth/young adults.
The program is set to provide workshops to participants through interactive demonstration and active participation within small group of parents and/or children. Our goal is for each participant to adopt or modify their financial behavior upon completion of a workshop or completing the Financial Literary Series.
The series is divided into four quarters:
(January) 1st Quarter- Financial freedom with better money habits
(April) 2nd Quarter- Spending wisely and saving more.
(July) 3rd Quarter- Helping families save money.
(October) 4th Quarter - Money Talks (Budgeting and Investing) Early.
Our Financial Literacy Program Director facilitate the program and work with the youth and young adults through our mentor program as well by giving teens a Head Start on Financial Independence: Money Management for kids, Earning Power, Saving and Investing, and information on how to open a bank account.
Ms. Sherrell Duclos is our Financial Literacy Program Director and can be contacted at [email protected] for collaboration and partnership opportunities to provide financial literacy outreach workshops to the community. We also seek sponsors to provide monetary grants or In-Kind donations to our Financial Literacy program to help cover cost of supplies, rewards, meeting space and food for participants.
