Financial Education at Middle Schools Announcement

Currently members of the pro-bono committee are focusing their energy on financial literacy for grade school children. As part of the ongoing effort, we have been working with a middle school teacher at a local school. The teacher has created an elective for students called “money matters” that introduces a variety of financial subject areas to students. These subject areas range from venture capitalism to identity theft. The committee is looking for volunteers to participate in a class room presentation if interested please contact Daria Victorov here.
