Help Teens Build Financial Well-being at Your Library
This webinar, in collaboration with CFPB, provides resource and programming ideas for libraries to help teen patrons become empowered to navigate their financial futures.
This event has passed.
As children grow, their potential to manage money and understand financial concepts grows as well. The knowledge, skills, and behaviors kids learn when they are young lay the groundwork for their financial well-being as adults, and libraries can play a role in building these important financial literacy skills.
The CFPB released youth financial education content with a robust set of activities for teen financial education programing. While designed for a classroom, these activities can be translated into youth financial education programing in your library. A robust search feature provides access to free high school activities to teach the building blocks of financial capability on topics ranging from saving for short-term goals, to preventing fraud and identity theft, to budgeting and managing credit. Join us to learn how to help your teen patrons become empowered to navigate their financial futures.
This webinar is presented in collaboration with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Presented by: Leslie Jones, Youth Financial Education Analyst, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and Rachel Grimes, Assistant Director of Financial Readiness, Student Money Management Center, University of North Texas; and Kristin Linscott, Development & Community Partnerships, Plano Public Library
