Teaching the Value of Money: Learning to Earn, Save and Invest

Saturday, June 1, 2019 10:00 am
Brookfield Zoo
8400 W 31st St

Many children aren’t taught the value of money, thus when they have money of their own as adults, they may not understand how to spend, save or invest.

Partnering with the Guarrine Group, we will run breakout sessions based on age to teach essential financial concepts. Younger children will learn things like the value of coins and bills. Young adults will explore more complex ideas like taxes and the effects of college loans. Following the program, families can enjoy activities at the zoo.

Designed For:
Children and young adults ages 4-18 and their families.

What They’ll Learn:

  • Earning money through wage, salary and borrowing
  • Banking basics such as budgeting, taxes and building a savings plan
  • Understanding saving vs investing
  • Giving back to charity and more

Course Highlights:

  • Hands-on learning
  • Concepts catered to age groups
  • Interactive workbook to personalize each learning experience
