Youth Programs

Money talks to Youth!

We offer a variety of fun, interactive, no-cost workshops for school students in the Piedmont Triad region to expose them to everything from building credit to investing, from student loan debt to the importance of sticking to a budget. CFSFC provides the materials, volunteers, and staff needed for every workshop.

In the summer CFSFC offers fun activities centered around money to summer camps, youth programs, church groups and many others.

There is a charge for non-school based and summer programs with a suggested donation of $75-$150 per session.
