In an ongoing effort to support and further financial education, Yolo Federal Credit Union is holding a Financial Boot Camp for teens and young adults ages 16-22.
“Very few states require financial literacy to graduate from high school,” said Jenee Rawlings, Yolo FCU president/CEO. “Students tend to learn the hard way by accumulating debt without an understanding of how to budget and manage their money. The financial boot camp is our way of helping to combat these issues and bring financial awareness and understanding to the youth of Yolo County.”
The boot camp will run from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 30, and Thursday, July 31, at 266 W. Main St. in Woodland.
Topics to cover include budgeting, money management, investing, borrowing, building credit and protecting yourself from fraud. In addition to Yolo FCU staff, there also will be guest speakers from various sectors including Swift Dodge and the District Attorney’s Office.
Subjects will be broken up over the two days and includes lunch. On the final day a raffle will be held for an iPad Mini for those attending both days.
