When your child graduates high school, will he or have the financial skills to stand on his own? Will your daughter know how to apply for and responsibly use a credit card? Will your son be able to plan for his first car?
York County Libraries’ Money School, open to all York County high school students and their parents, aims to introduce the financial basics: “managing checking and savings accounts, using debit and credit cards, the importance of credit history, and how to create a financial plan, budget and goals,” according to a press release.
The next seminar will be held 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Nov. 17 at William Penn Senior High School, 101 W. College Ave., York. The program is free and includes breakfast; you can register online at www.yorklibraries.org.
Incentives will be awarded to students who complete the workshop and visit their local library afterward — from a free DVD rental to a chance to win an e-reader.
“Money School” is presented by York County Libraries through a Smart Investing @your library grant. Call 717-849-6944 or by email email@example.com with questions.
