Children in the age range 7 to 14 are encouraged to register and attend The Money Box Workshop on May 28 from 1-3:30 p.m. at The Arts Council, located at 301 Hay Street in Fayetteville. Free resources and refreshments will be provided as well as free admission for parents and guardians to the participating youth. 

“Kishanna and I are committed to enriching the lives of our youth and their parents, especially within underserved communities, by coaching them through real-life financial management practices,” said McLean. “The lifelong lessons they will gain will better equip them for a more secure and sustainable future.”

The Money Box Workshop will help build confidence by providing a hands-on approach to educating and empowering the youth through practices of key financial literacy components, including: budgeting, saving, and spending, 

Parents and guardians will also have the opportunity to learn financial concepts through free resources and discussions regarding credit establishment, budget creation, debt management, and more.
