Free Teen Finance Workshop

The Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program will offer its “On Your Own” Financial Literacy Workshop on Monday, March 23 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Cooperative Extension Office, located at 559 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach.

Exploring finances becomes fun through hands-on activities and simulations that help youth ages 12 and over develop valuable money management and workforce skills. Light refreshments will be provided.

Activities will include: taking a personality test; discovering careers that match personality type; understanding salary, payroll and taxes; learning how to write checks; developing a budget; and shopping at the “4-H City” for housing, transportation, food, child care, clothing, entertainment, insurance and utilities while staying in a budget.
