The Maryland Council on Economic Education and Freedom Federal Credit Union partner with HCPS for financial literacy training

The Maryland Council on Economic Education, with financial support from Freedom Federal Credit Union, is partnering with the HCPS Office of Social Studies to offer Financial Literacy training for teachers in grades 3, 4, and 5 at Churchville, Darlington, Havre de Grace, Meadowvale, and Roye Williams elementary schools. Through this new partnership, students will have the opportunity to engage in activities designed to improve their understanding of: how to make informed, financially-responsible decisions; connecting careers, education and income; planning and managing money; understanding credit; and achieving long-term goals in order to build financial security.
