April is Youth Financial Literacy Month in the state of Michigan (Senate Resolution No. 128). Student Scholarships and Grants (SSG) is working to promote financial education through classroom presentations of our financial education program, Collegiate Reality and classroom activities that include an M&M budgeting activity and Money Matters Thumball (a product of Michigan Credit Union League). Learning how to manage money and knowledge of budgeting, credit/debt, and saving/investing is important. Financial education can result in more stable communities and smarter consumer choices. Money Smart Week (April 5-12) is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. For details on events, visit www.moneysmartweek.org.
