"Passport to Financial Literacy"

This is the 2nd annual event of Passport to Financial Literacy. This event was held at Howard Community College in Columbia, Maryland. It was a free event which is designed as an interactive experience for teens and their parents to simulate "real life" financial planning, goal setting as well as decision making skills.

The Director of the mentoring program thought it would be a great event for the mentors and mentees to attend. Since we were such a large group the creator of the group personally took the time to go through the program with us (there were 18 of us). It was to see the mentees make decisions about choosing a career and then see what their incomes will be based on their career and then see how "real life" comes into play with paying bills, insurance, owning a car, etc. It was quite an eye opening experience for them.

Overall, it was a great way to spend the early part of our day!
