Money Management Seminar Tonight in Capitol Heights

This story comes to us from the Leigh Bodden Foundation:

(BOWIE, MD, March 22, 2011) Financial education empowers individuals to plan for the future as well as maintain a prosperous lifestyle. In the past, young people were expected to learn the necessary financial skills from their families. However, statistics show that the majority of our nation's adults lack this knowledge.
With this in mind, The Leigh Bodden Foundation, Inc. (LBF), United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. (UCAP), and Camp Fire USA Patuxent Area Council are collaborating to sponsor a Money Management Seminar tonight, March 31, 2011, from 6:30-8:00pm, specifically tailored to youth in our community.  
The seminar which is scheduled as the kick off to Financial Literacy Month will be conducted by subject matter experts from Bank Of America Community Volunteers (BOA).  The presentation will focus on giving young people guidance on handling personal funds and budgeting along with sharing important tips and key factors to consider when managing finances in varying economic climates. In addition, attendees will be afforded the opportunity to actively participate through activities such as developing a personal plan which they can adjust, expand and improve upon outside of the seminar.
The event will be held at United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. 1400 Doewood Lane, Capitol Heights, MD 20731 in the Center Cafeteria.  Middle and high school youth are invited to attend and learn how to begin developing a lifetime of financial well being.
Pre-registration is required. Space Is limited. Youth may register by emailing Camp Fire USA at info@campfireusa-patuxent.org or by calling 240-391-6246 or through UCAP by contacting MClark@ucappgc.org
