Community Outreach

The Word is Out, Student Outreach Is In

School's out and whether students are enjoying the beach, camping, baseball games or other fun-in-the-sun activities they probably have one thing in common, they're spending money. Help your student learn to use their funds wisely so they'll have enough to spend on hot dogs at the ballpark and to put towards a down payment on their first car.

Check out CalCPA's Community Outreach for a list of resources that will give you great ideas for teaching your student about money management.

Don't forget that money management can be a great addition to your student's classroom, download our student outreach program brochure to check out our classroom resources and share them with your student's teacher this fall.
