A school teaching teenagers the value of a dollar
For some teenagers, frugality is in their blood; for most, they spend money as soon as they get it.
Fortunately for parents and their children who struggle with finances, there’s a new school that will help make things much clearer.
Hanover High School is hosting Money School from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20. Money School is a free workshop that helps prepare students for what to expect financially in post-high school life.
Regardless if students are going to college, trade school, the military or straight into work, Money School promises to teach the fundamentals of checking and savings accounts, credit and debit cards and creating a personal budget.
Money School is presented by York County Libraries through a grant that only 16 libraries in the country receive. The workshop will be presented at various schools in York County.
The workshop includes a free continental breakfast. Registration is required in advance at www.yorklibraries.org.
