This K-5 after school program was developed in response to a growing interest in teaching students about personal finance through settings outside of the traditional school day.  This program was designed to be taught by after-school service providers, with support from content experts. The curriculum teaches young students about financial choices, cost-benefit analysis for purchases, the role of an entrepreneur, and the economics and finances of their individual communities—all with a goal of helping children understand that saving is a good thing. Participants will receive a free 12 lesson manual and training both on the manual’s content and strategies for implementing the lessons.  Follow-up support during the initial implementation of the program will also be provided to ensure service providers are comfortable with teaching the lessons. Registration for this workshop begins at 9:30 a.m.
