Dr. Alisha Pollard, President and Co-founder, of the Warriors Helping Achieve Triumph (W.H.A.T.) organization visited CSA to teach our 9th and 10th graders about the importance of money management. The W.H.A.T. organization supports youth in the area by offering financial literacy workshops and tutoring. The workshop took place on August 12, 2022. Our rising 9th and 10th graders participated.
As our alum get closer to the working age, it is important that they learn about the value of money and good money management practices. We partnered with a local organization who does this work well to ensure that our students have opportunities to both learn and practice financial wellness. Students were exposed to key terms, learned the importance of saving, and practiced creating a budget. We plan to offer more opportunities like this for our alum in the near future as they begin to think about good spending habits in high school and college.
Thank you to Dr. Pollard for taking the time to work with us this summer. You can learn more about the W.H.A.T. organization here: https://www.facebook.com/
