School’s Out — Financial Literacy is IN!

Operation HOPE
Jul 29, 2018 · 2 min read

Students may be on summer break for a few more weeks, but that didn’t stop nearly 400 of them in the metro-Atlanta area from learning about financial literacy, through the efforts of Atlanta Youth Program Manager Meghan Cook.


In the month of June, 11 volunteers empowered students with financial education fundamentals through Banking On Our Future (BOOF). Our community partners included: Community Teen Coalition, Young Wall Street, Clarkston Community Center, Communities in Schools, Redan-Trotti Library, and The Ascent Project. Some of the area schools that filtered into the summer programs hosted by these partners included: Banneker High School, Griffin High School, Slater Elementary School, and Creekside High School.
