Financing Your Future is a program designed to teach financial literacy to 13-18 year old high school students and their parents. It is funded through a $65,175 grant from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association (ALA) as part of the nationwide smart investing@your library program.
All Troy residents may attend the 19 in-class sessions. However, registrants must be ages 13-18 to attend the social events and to be eligible for a program scholarship. Parents of student participants may also attend sessions and events. Register here.
To be eligible to win a scholarship, in addition to being age 13-18, students must:
- Attend at least 10 program sessions
- Participate in two social events
- Volunteer at one social event
- Complete the pre-treatment and post-treatment surveys
If you missed the first two in-class sessions held September 14 and 28, fear not! Videos will be at http://financing.troylibrary.info/resources/session-videos. Those who watch a session on-line, complete the associated quiz and submit it to the Library's administration office will receive credit for that class.
