FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY JUNIOR COURSE
CONGRATULATIONS!! Fourteen students completed the Dave Ramsey FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY JUNIOR classes this past week at Fields of Grace Outreach. Each financial literacy class was designed to teach beneficial, life-long lessons on how earning money works, how to save and pay cash, the importance of giving, and how to have fun spending on a plan. The lessons of working, giving, saving and spending were brought to life through fun stories in the activity books and exciting videos and songs. These lessons will aid the youth in their decision making now and throughout their lives, keeping in mind the FPU motto which teaches them "to tell your money where to go, rather than wondering where your money went."
Each participant received a free Financial Peace Junior Kit chock full of workbooks, magnetic dry-erase chore chart, stickers, zippered envelopes for Saving, Spending and Giving, and they also received a special Smart Saver Bank. The kits also enabled parents to access free online resources, books, and games for their children.
Volunteer mentors and parents aided the students as they completed each lesson in their workbooks during the sessions and then youth and parents were instructed to work on their plans at home during the week. FPU Junior was free to all youth who participated through Fields of Grace's Discussion Program funding and a partial grant from Thrivent Financial through their "Action Team" initiative. Thrivent also provided a free "Live Generously" t-shirt for everyone.
Classes begin Sat., Sept. 10th - 10am-12noon
This 9 week course will change your life forever!
