Financial Matters to reach 2,000 students in April

April is Financial Literacy Month and this month, Financial Matters is making a big impact on metro-area high school students. On April 6, 21 volunteers in the financial services industry visited Cooper High School in New Hope to speak with 405 seniors about using credit wisely. Volunteers went into 15 classrooms to educate students using an engaging, interactive presentation.

Later this month: Steve Lear from Affiance Financial will speak with all of the juniors at Washburn High School about financial capability.

Twenty volunteers from several area organizations will head to Patrick Henry High School to speak with the entire senior class about budgeting and credit.

April 29th is Teach Your Children to Save Day! BestPrep volunteers will visit classrooms around the state on this day to increase students’ financial literacy through presentations about money, budgeting, and credit.

BestPrep’s Financial Matters program will continue to work with educators to bring volunteer speakers into classrooms through the end of the school year. If you’re interested in volunteering, visit our website to register.


BestPrep’s Financial Matters program coordinates free volunteer speakers from the financial services industry to go into the classroom to talk with students about money, budgeting, credit, taxes, and investing. Power point presentations and materials are provided.
