Councilmember Keisha Bottoms Teaches Financial Responsiblity to Atlanta Youth

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by Dexter Chambers)  Atlanta City Councilmember Keisha Lance Bottoms is pleased to host a three-day course designed to teach Atlanta’s youth personal financial responsibility and money management skills that can last a lifetime.

The Youth Financial Literacy Program will equip youth with the necessary critical economic thinking tools needed for tomorrow’s economy.

The free program will be held on Saturdays from February 19 until March 5 at The Andrew and Walter Young Family YMCA, 2220 Campbellton Road, S.W. For more information or to register call 404-330-6054 or 404-660-2461 or email kbottoms@atlantaga.gov Space is limited.

The program will offer workshops and courses on financial literacy, fun-filled exercises, and hands-on activities for youth grades 7 thru 12.

The Youth Financial Literacy Program will also educate Atlanta’s youth about important financial matters by exploring traditional and non-traditional ways of building wealth.  Teaching money management skills that are focused on a 'practical' financial education will help to reduce debt, increase savings and help to ensure financial security in an ever unpredictable economy.
