We are excited to announce that the Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council (MYLC), is the recipient of the U.S. Conference of Mayor’s DollarWise Innovative Financial Literacy grant. Since 2015, our teen members have accepted the challenge to lead high school students through lessons about budgeting, credit cards, and financial aid through their “Teens and Money” financial literacy workshops.
The DollarWise funding allows MYLC to continue peer-to-peer facilitation and expand its reach to additional schools. With flexible in-and-out of school session options, students gain access to resources to help prepare them to make responsible financial decisions in the future.
Do you want to earn money for college while educating your friends and peers on how to be financial responsible? Then become a teen financial literacy facilitator.
