DoverPhila to Present Finance Program for Teens at Dover Library

(Dover, Ohio) – DoverPhila Federal Credit Union is partnering with the Dover Public Library to present the credit union’s Finances 101 program.

The program will be held on Saturday, September 26th at 2:30 pm in the library’s parking lot. Registration is required for this program, which is free and open to teens and young adults.

Finances 101 is a financial education program geared towards teens and young adults that incorporates a life-size board game to teach real-world financial demands.

Participants make life choices through the draw of the cards, the roll of the dice, or the spin of a wheel as they travel around the game. Contestants may payout money to be in a friend’s wedding, have a winning lottery ticket, pay an unexpected visit to the emergency room, or get a promotion at work.

The goal of the program is to educate individuals on earning a salary, paying bills and taxes, what it costs to run a household, how earnings impact buying decisions, and what responsibilities lie ahead in the adult world.

If you think you can successfully complete Finances 101, or if you know of someone who would enjoy this program, then please contact Dover Public Library to register at 330-343-6123.
