"Money Matters" Workshop
October 25, 2017

The University’s Accounting and Finance Club will be holding a program called “Money Matters,” at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania on Thursday, November 9, 2017, at 3:45 p.m., at the Boys and Girls Club, 609 Ash St, Scranton, PA 18510

During the workshop, University Accounting and Finance Club student members will teach Boys and Girls Club members (ages 6-9) about the importance of financial savings and lead them in an arts and crafts project to create their own personal piggy bank. Additional sessions are planned for the spring semester, at which Marywood students will teach the Boys and Girls Club members (ages 10-14) about basic money management and finance skills such as how to write a check, understanding what a credit card is, and how to use a credit card appropriately.

The goal of the University’s Accounting and Finance Club is to further enhance accounting and finance learning through real-world experiences and discussions.

“This project allows students to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it to children in local community organizations,” said Amy Washo, instructor in the School of Business and Global Innovation at the University.
