“With students returning to school, now is a great time for parents and teachers to incorporate new educational ways for kids and teens to learn about finances, money and business,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “As longtime advocates of the SDCCU Biz Kid$ program, we’re excited to be able to continue to offer Back-to-School with Biz Kid$ events online.”
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 kids 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.
