  • Basic Budgeting teaches second through fourth graders about needs and wants, and basic budgeting concepts. Participants will play a back-to-school shopping game to reinforce their learning, and will also have the opportunity to practice creating their own budget.

  • Beyond Basic Budgeting guides eighth through twelfth graders through the concepts of budgeting and scarcity, introduce them to the ideas of basic payroll taxes, and provide them with the opportunity to practice creating a real-world budget.
