Nice turnout for "Eddie Eagle" Gun-safe Program
Over 30 youth and adults turned out for this first "Eddie Eagle Gun-safe Program of 2017. Every child received his/her certificate signed by Eddie Eagle and a personal completion card to carry. The adults even received their certificate and card also. Two youth are not official mentors since they have attended three programs.
Thank you to the Middleburgh Rod & Gun Club for letting us use their large clubhouse for these events and thanks especially to their volunteers who helped with some of the teaching. Hopefully the lessons learned will stay with these kids their whole lives.... "What do you do when you see a gun?" "Stop! Don't Touch! Run away! Tell a Grown-up!"
Watch for details of the next class being scheduled this summer.

Hi! Thanks for checking us out!
Fields of Grace Outreach is a youth development organization that has 5 different "fields", or programs, to help kids. Our programs in leadership training, life skills, discussion, recreation, and assistance all work together to help youth and young adults look to their futures with hope. They gain knowledge in beneficial skills like financial literacy and entrepreneurship, and also have fun in many outdoor activities to keep them physically healthy. Free training classes in CPR/AED and 1st Aid, also prepare them to be ready for emergencies. Whether it's a need for learning how to get ready for college, or a more personal need for school supplies or food and clothing, we can help. Check out our website further and see how we can help you. We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at one of our classes or events.
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 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.
Thanks to all the volunteers and parents, and also to Thrivent Financial. Through their "Action Team" initiative and Fields of Grace's Discussion Program, this program was offered FREE to all. Oh, yes! We also got free t-shirts!! Thanks!
Financial Peace University for young adults and adults will begin again in September 2017. Be watching for dates and times.
