“Spring Break is a great time for parents and teachers to introduce fun educational ways for kids and teens to learn about finances, money and business and to celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month”, said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “Engaging students to learn the basics of financial literacy will help them build a foundation towards a successful financial future. For SDCCU, this is a key part of our community outreach, which is why we are pleased to offer SDCCU Biz Kid$ events to the community.”
SDCCU launched the program in partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education and the County of San Diego, in support of Live Well San Diego, in 2015. Biz Kid$ is an award-winning, comprehensive financial literacy program focused on teaching students how to use credit wisely and about the importance of saving, budgeting, investing and giving back to their communities. The Biz Kid$ program and all episodes are based on national standards for financial literacy and entrepreneurship education, and have been mapped to individual state standards.
