SDCCU Biz Kid$ Bashes happening at YMCAs throughout 2017

Parents and kids are welcome to join us for a free, fun and interactive session to learn about money and business

3/03/2017 12:00 a.m.

SDCCU is hosting monthly SDCCU Biz Kid$ Bashes at YMCA of San Diego County locations throughout 2017 as part of Financial Wellness Wednesdays.

The first SDCCU Biz Kid$ Bash will be held at 5 p.m. on March 8 at the Copley-Price Family YMCA Teen Center located at 4300 El Cajon Blvd. in City Heights. The bash is a free, fun and interactive session open to parents and children. Attendees will learn about money and business skills, how to write a business plan and how to create a successful business.
“SDCCU is proud to work with the YMCA of San Diego to bring this invaluable program to parents and children. The SDCCU Biz Kid$ program is designed to teach students the basics of money and business to help them make better financial decisions early on and enhance their lives for years to come,” said Teresa Halleck, SDCCU President and CEO.

Research shows that the average high-school graduate lacks basic skills to manage personal finances, many young people experience difficulty balancing a checkbook and half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. For more of these statistics, view the SDCCU Biz Kid$ program infographic.

Biz Kid$ is an award-winning comprehensive financial literacy program focused on teaching kids how to use credit wisely and the importance of saving, budgeting, investing and giving back to their communities. The program includes an Emmy award winning television series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, and a website for kids 9 – 16 years old. Biz Kid$ is the first national public television series promoting financial education for elementary through high school students and was created by the same team that produced Bill Nye the Science Guy. All of the Biz Kid$ episodes are based on national standards for financial literacy and entrepreneurship education and have been mapped to individual state standards.
“As San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, and a Live Well San Diego partner, we understand that encouraging and maintaining good financial health among individuals in our communities is essential to fostering a healthy and thriving economy,” said Halleck. “SDCCU is committed to helping parents and children in communities where we live and work make educated financial decisions by delivering the BEST financial education, products and services.”
The SDCCU Biz Kid$ Bashes will be held at local YMCAs on Financial Wellness Wednesdays, an ongoing program hosted by SDCCU to help provide the community access to free financial wellness information.
