SANTA ROSA, Calif. (6/5/14)--Redwood CU is partnering with the Sonoma County Office of Education and Santa Rosa City Schools to offer a free financial academy for California high school students.

Using the high school financial planning program created by the National Endowment for Financial Education, the 16-hour program includes topics such as budgeting, financial planning, saving and investing, credit and debt management and other life skills related to managing money.
 
Teens come together to work on group activities and are also given presentations from Redwood CU experts in their respective fields.
 
The six modules included in The Summer Banking and Finance Academy program are:
  • Money Management: Control Your Cash Flow;
  • Borrowing: Use--Don't Abuse;
  • Earning Power: More Than a Paycheck;
  • Investing: Money Working for You;
  • Financial Services: Care for Your Cash; and
  • Insurance: Protect What You Have.
The four-day program will be held June 17-20 at the Redwood CU administrative offices in Santa Rosa. While past academies have been limited to high school juniors and seniors, eligibility has been extended to include students entering their sophomore year at any Sonoma County high school.
