DUNEDIN – Money Matters for Kids is a financial capability program for kids.
Because April is National Financial Literary Month, What’s Your GPA? is teaming up with the Dunedin Public Library to introduce the program.
What’s Your GPA? is a newly formed not-for-profit organization established to assist children and adults with developing goals, plans and action steps to assist them in obtaining financial security to achieve the lifestyles they desire.
The program’s kickoff event will be held on April 30 at the Dunedin Public Library from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is geared toward children ages 4-10 and their parents. There will be live entertainment, games, prizes and refreshments. Local adult and teen volunteers will assist the kids to better understand the concept of money. Children will move through a series of interactive play stations, including currency identification, the value of money, “what’s it worth,” “wants vs. needs,” “saving vs. spending,” and family expenses and budgeting.
This event is an introduction to a free financial capability program, which will be offered at the library either this summer or after school starting in the middle of September. Parents will determine when the curriculum begins.
Parents interested in participating with their children may register by visiting the Dunedin Public Library, Youth Services desk or by calling 727-298-3080, ext. 1732.
