Attend one of the free financial-literacy seminars designed specifically for individual’s aged 15 to 20 to be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bartram Trail Branch Library on Saturday, June 15, and at the Southeast Branch Library on Saturday, June 22.
Jointly developed by the St. Johns County Public Library System and the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA), the Teen Financial Literacy Series’ one-day curriculum is geared toward recent high school graduates, those starting a first job, students heading off to college, or any teenager who wants to learn about managing money.
Classes will be taught by the St. Johns River Chapter of the FICPA. Subjects include careers, income, spending and budgeting, savings and investing, credit cards, automobiles, and college. Class sizes are limited, so call either branch to register. Lunch will be provided at each location by the FICPA.
