Money camps offered for teens

Virginia Credit Union is partnering with local libraries to offer money camps that will provide financial education to teens in the Greater Richmond region.

VaCU is continuing the program following the success of last year’s financial workshops and seminars, which drew nearly 10,000 adults and students.

The financial workshops are free and offered to help high school students better understand the financial world through hands-on activities, computer research skills and interaction with other peers.

Virginia Credit Union’s financial education staff will host two local workshops to teach students how to make the most of their money.

The July 11-15 workshop is scheduled at the Tuckahoe Library on Starling Drive in Henrico, while the July 18-22 workshop will be held at the Richmond Public Library Main Branch on East Franklin Street.

Each class at the Tuckahoe Library will be held in the TU Computer Lab, and the Richmond Main Library’s classes will be held in its computer lab.

The camps run from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Each day of the week is dedicated to a different topic. Budgeting and credit tips will be given on Mondays, careers and taxes on Tuesday, car buying on Wednesday, renting vs. buying a home on Thursdays and savings and inheritance on Friday.

Registration is open to everyone at http://www.vacu.org/Learn/Seminars.aspxor at (804) 323-6800. Since registration is limited, all participants must commit to attend for the entire week.
