Savings Week: Financial Literacy Education for Pennsylvania Youth, Grades K-12

February 22-26, 2021

Despite a growing push for financial literacy classes to be offered in schools, many youths across the state still do not have access to the resources that they need to prepare them for the future. Savings Week aims to help bridge the gap by familiarizing youth of all ages with the financial literacy tools that will help them succeed. Professionals will lead workshops that cover a variety of topics like budgeting, financing education, investing, and more.
