Teens paid to learn about financial literacy

MIDDLEBURY — Handling money is an important skill for youth as they grow towards adulthood, but it’s not one that’s usually taught in school.
To counter that Vermont Adult Learning (VAL) is holding a seven-week series of financial literacy workshops, called “Project Money,” for teens. Participants will not only learn all the ins and outs of money management but will actually be paid to do so.
The workshops will be beheld every Tuesday, from 3:45 p.m. to 5 p.m., beginning Feb. 26 and ending April 9, at the Teen Center in Middlebury. The teen center is a standalone building off Mary Hogan Drive between the elementary school and the tennis courts. David Roberts and Natalie Riegle from VAL will facilitate the workshops.
For each workshop completed, participants will receive $10, courtesy of a grant from the National Bank of Middlebury. If they complete all seven workshops, they will receive a kicker of $15 extras, earning $75 in total.
During the seventh and final workshop, all participants will be helped to open their own bank account, if they do not already have one.
For more information and to sign up for “Project Money” head online to middteens.org.
