Program Description

Event Details

Interested in learning how to effectively budget? Curious about ways to earn money as a fourth- through sixth-grader? Join high school senior Annika Khurana for another session of Money Matters, back by popular demand!

This five-week session will cover basic money management strategies, such as differentiating between needs and wants, the 50/30/20 budgeting rule, and opening a bank account. There will also be discussions on ways to make a positive impact on your community while earning some money, perhaps by organizing a garage sale that prevents used items from ending up in a landfill. Concepts taught in this series can lay a foundation for financial literacy and money-management habits for years to come. Please plan to join us for all five classes (November 5, 12 & 19 and December 3 & 10), as lessons will build on one another.
