Common Cent$

Designed to encourage financial literacy in our local schools, this immersive, in-person financial literacy program gives high school and community college students the opportunity to learn hands on how to balance a monthly income with a variety of real-world financial obligations. Common Cent$ allows students to see how both small and large financial decisions, from owning a home to eating out and getting a haircut, can affect their overall financial picture, their ability to save for the future, and their potential to reach their goals. Let's make learning about money fun!
