Program teaches teens about finances

Your teen has been accepted to the college or trade school of their dream. Soon they’ll be starting a new phase of discovery and challenge for their future. For many, the teen years may be the first time they start to earn money of their own.

Understanding their finances is an important step upon high school graduation and before heading off to college. Do they understand the difference between good and bad debt, the real cost of life, how to read a paycheck or create a budget? Establishing good money habits can pay dividends well into the future.

Teen Finance 101 runs 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at the Brighton District Library. The program, presented by Josh Bitel from Center for Financial Planning, will teach teens how to establish credit, what interest is, how to write a check, and more. Preregister for this program by calling (810) 229-6571, ext. 227.
