Being frugal with money can be a skill that takes practice, and Leslie Boden of Money Management Counselors aims to mitigate the trial and error part. One way to do that is to equip elementary and junior high-aged students with critical knowledge before getting to a point of financial independence. This year, Boden and the team at MMC gives kids the chance to enhance their financial literacy with a nine-week program that’s centered around understanding different forms of currency, making money choices, and long-term strategizing. Boden finds it to be a way to keep kids in the learning pool without the school year stress level.
The program is geared toward fifth through eighth-graders
