As a financial educator, I have worked with hundreds of adults who have experienced financial distress because they did not have the basic knowledge to manage their finances effectively.
This week, I had the privilege of helping the next generation of consumers learn money management skills. Partnering with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, RTN was invited to present two interactive workshops for students from the Boston school system as part of their workforce development summer youth programs. These dynamic programs help students develop the skills they need to become the next generation of valuable employees.
I was thrilled to do my part by presenting “Basics of Money Management.” This RTN seminar covered the basics, from getting their first paychecks to saving for long-term investments.
The feedback we received from these students was great. They were really excited to learn about how to manage their money and learn how to make smart choices. It was easy to tell they knew firsthand what can go wrong, and want to be proactive in avoiding those mistakes in their future. RTN was there to help.
