ESCANABA, Mich. (WZMQ) – Teenagers can learn the basics of financial literacy this May thanks to Peninsula Federal Credit Union (PFCU).
The credit union is hosting free Teen Financial Education Nights once a week for the entire month. While sessions will be held at the main branch in Escanaba, teens from anywhere in the U.P. can attend virtually.
Teens between the ages of 15 and 18 will learn how to balance a budget, how to understand credit scores and reports, and how to develop strong saving and spending habits.
“These are things that kids miss out on, and a lot of times it’s a gap of understanding,” said trainer Tyler DuBord. “I think if we can continue to bring those pieces to a younger generation, they’ll be more prepared for the future of balancing a budget.”
Teens must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend. Attendees are not required to be PFCU members.
Teen Financial Education Nights will take place May 2, 10, 16, 24, and 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
