Financial Literacy Topic at Washington’s After School Program
May 30, 2017 – Students participating in the After School Program at Washington Middle School had the opportunity to participate in a nine-week course on Financial Literacy. A total of 33 students participated and completed the sessions.
The course was offered through the partnerships with Bank of America and California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB). The lessons were taught by a representative from the bank, and two interns from the CSUB Business Department. The topics presented to the students encouraged planning for financial success and security, and stressed the importance of short-term, mid-range and long-term goals.
As a culmination of the nine-week course, the graduating students were treated to a special field trip to the campus of CSUB. They had the opportunity to tour the campus, visit classrooms, and hear from CSUB students majoring in Business.
