United Way Brings Financial Education to Young Adults for “Get Smart About Credit Day”

October 12, 2009 by  

In celebration of “Get Smart About Credit Day” on Oct. 15, United Way of Southern Nevada is partnering with the Nevada Bankers Association to teach financial responsibility and credit lessons to high school students Oct. 12-29. Aligned with United Way’s core principal of providing lasting change through financial stability, nearly 50 classes will be held at schools across the Valley reaching 1,000 students.

“Get Smart About Credit” is a program focused on supplying young adults with the necessary tools for successfully handling their financial responsibilities both now and in the future. The program provides the youth with a solid understanding of how to manage their personal finances and provides tips for increasing income and personal wealth later in life.

“To build for a better tomorrow, we need to educate southern Nevada’s youth on how to responsibly manage their finances,” said Dan Goulet, president and CEO of United Way of Southern Nevada. “By promoting good learning and fiscal habits early on in life these young students are being prepared for a financially sound future.”

From Oct. 12-29, the program will connect qualified volunteer instructors with local educational faculties to bring valuable lessons in financial stability. The instructors will tour schools and prepare hands-on presentations for the students.
