VerMoney: Teaching Financial Literacy in Afterschool
By Beth Pearce, Vermont State Treasurer
Repost from Afterschool Snack

As a State Treasurer, my job is to serve as the state’s banker, managing resources and ensuring sound money practices. Our office’s top priority is for every Vermonter to achieve a lifetime of financial well-being. One of the ways we act to achieve this goal is by promoting financial literacy. Education in the afterschool space is an important part of our strategy to provide Vermonters with the tools to increase their financial capability. Being “financially literate” means having the knowledge, skills, and habits to successfully manage your money. To encourage financial literacy, we work with educators to help students develop these skills early in their education. Our office annually develops original curriculum and content for schools so students can learn concepts like entrepreneurship, budgeting, saving, investing, and more. In 2018, we partnered with local afterschool experts to launch a new financial education program called VerMoney.
