THE STORY:

Empowering Youth to Make Wise Financial Decisions FLY (Financial Literacy for Youth) is a week long Summer Camp Program to educate area ninth and tenth graders  in the areas of fiscal responsibility and entrepreneurship.  www.fiatprogram.org

The current program accommodates 25-30 ninth and tenth grade students and includes two segments: Basic Financial Skills (budgeting, bank account reconciliation, how the tax system works, how the Capital system works, etc.), and Entrepreneurship.

Students  learn habits for responsible personal finance, how to budget for prosperity and wealth, debt and credit responsibility, how our tax system works, explore turning their skills, values, and interests into a career or educational path, and more.

According to the 2011 Charles Schwab survey, 75% of teens say that learning more about money management is one of their top priorities. But financial literacy instruction is not offered at most high schools and universities, and personal finance/money management remains one of the least taught subjects. FLY's mission is to bridge the gap between what our children need to prepare for fiscal responsibility, and what is actually available to them.
