|Financial Literacy for Children||Posted||on May 21, 2015||
Purpose: The Salvation Army Chartiers Valley Service Center is collaborating with Carnegie-Collier Rotary Club to teach a one-time program to local children, ages 11-14 how to attend to their personal finances.
Date and Time: Monday July 13th- Friday July 17th, 2015 from 10:00 A.M.-1P.M.
Price: The camp will be free of charge.
Availability: There will be enough slots available to accommodate between 8 and 10 children.
Sponsor: This camp will be entirely sponsored by Carnegie-Collier Rotary.
Format: This is a 5 day immersion camp using an informal classroom style where children will learn by using games, skits, and spending plans. It will end with the child choosing a charity of their liking to donate money to using a gift card given to them by the Rotary. Students will have a chance, with the parent’s as a co-signer, to open their very own bank account at a bank of their choosing. WesBanco is currently offering a Minor Savings Account plan and will give the child a $10 deposit if the parent opens the account with at least $10. The account has to remain open for at least 90 days.
Goals: To give awareness to children about their financial attitudes, decision making skills, wants/needs. They will learn why and how to save and cut down on spending. They will also learn the importance of tithing by donating to their favorite charity.
Partnership Roles: Develop curriculum, finance project, provide food for the children and run the daily camp.
Collateral Benefits of the Program: Teaching children the basics of saving and spending money at a young age can save them from financial heartache and loss. The participants are empowered to make their own financial choices and weigh the importance of their decisions. Teaching low-income children will not only benefit their own lives, but the lives of generations to come. In addition, parents will have the week to themselves while their children are attending a free camp with The Salvation Army Chartiers Valley Service Center and the Carnegie-Collier Rotary Club.
