Youth-Events-Y-Fi-for-middle-and-high-school-studentsMakingChange Hosts Financial Wellness Events

MakingChange hosts a variety of financial wellness events throughout the year, like the annual Money Matters Fair held in early spring.

Last year, the Money Matters Fair, sponsored by BGE, attracted more than 250 attendees who came to learn about issues such as living within your means, college funding options, preparing for retirement and caring for aging parents. Workshops, financial planning sessions, tax preparation and a “credit café” where participants could obtain a credit report were featured. Pro bono financial planners were available for consultation.

The event provided activities for children ages 12-18 and their parents included the popular Y-Fi (Youth Finance) interactive financial simulation designed to show how career, education and spending choices impact success.
