Career Day and Financial Literacy

April 30 was the last day of Financial Literacy Month, and I have to say it was a busy one for me.  I had the opportunity to speak to three elementary schools in East Orange, New Jersey.  The group of kids that I spoke to ranged from 4th to 5th graders and I was amazed of the response I got from the students, when came to money.  When I spoke to the students I began my speech with a question, What is money?  I also explained to the  students three things I wanted to share with them points about money, and that was (1) How to save money,  (2) How to respect money, and (3) How to spend money.   I'm glad I took part in the event, and guess what I was invited to provide a workshop to a group of students in the city of East Orange, this upcoming Saturday May 5, 2012.   Here are some pics, list below of the event.

  1. What a great program you are a part of! Teaching kids about money in school is the way to go. What better place to equip our kids than at place where they spend 6-8 hours a day.

    I would live to be a part of something like this!

      Thank you so much, yes I enjoy it too. You should start as well volunteer you time. You can get started too at a school, religious organization, or non-profit.
