EYEJ is excited to announce a new partnership with Third Federal Savings and Loan! Through this partnership, Third Federal will sponsor a financial literacy discussion series for our students in the 2016-2017 school year. EYEJ incorporates financial literacy as part of the Curriculum for the Discussion Series every year and believes that it’s part of teaching values and self-confidence. Having financial literacy experts from Third Federal will give our youth a better understanding of how to budget for living expenses and savings and introduce them to important future financial responsibilities.Not enough youth have a basic, working knowledge of personal finances in today’s world. In this recent Huffington Post article, finance guru Latoya Scott points out this surprising fact: a vast majority of students in both high schools and colleges do not have savings, nor do they know how to develop a monthly budget.

Thanks to Third Federal Savings & Loan for partnering, we hope our youth can increase their financial literacy and develop the ability to make wise monetary choices to help boost their own inner confidence. This will only increase their future independence and give them the freedom to grow as citizens!
