Louisiana Jumpstart and EBRPS to host “Financial Smarts”
Financial $marts for High School Students & Families event is free and open to all high school students and their families on Saturday, March 22.
Louisiana Jump Start Coalition and EBR School System have partnered to bring pertinent financial information to families with high school students, regardless of their school affiliation or parish of residence.
“We are trying to start a productive dialogue between parents and their high school students about what to expect during the transition families face when their youth start their journey to financial independence and the challenges of life after high school,” says Jump Start COO, Debbie Lapeyrouse.
LELA is offering a $500 scholarship drawing for a graduating senior and the workshop is a series of fun, interactive and informative sessions designed to address concerns of students and families. Topics include “Getting Real About Money: Making Ends Meet’, “The Inside Story On Financial Aid” and “Financial Face-Off: Meeting In The Middle”.
Financial $marts for High School Students & Families from 9:30AM to 12:00 at the EBR Parish School Board’s Instructional Resource Center (IRC) located at 1022 S. Foster Drive, Baton Rouge, LA.
