The Southeast Arkansas Financial Education Center, Inc. (SAFE), a non-profit organization, will conduct a money camp for youth on July 26–27 from 8:30 a.m. until noon at the Southeast Arkansas Regional Library, Monticello Branch, located at 114 W. Jefferson Avenue.
The free, two-day Youth Money Camp is offered to youth ages 13 to 18 years. Participants will learn how to spend, save and invest money wisely. Additional enrichment training will include entrepreneurship, tax education, college preparation and job readiness. Participants will be provided a creative learning environment full of fun activities, food, special awards, and t-shirts. A scavenger hunt will be the conclusion of the event. Details will be provided at the camp.
“This is the second year for the Youth Money Camp,” said Clarissa Pace, founder of the non-profit organization. “Last year was an awesome success with over 30 children participating. We had awesome community support as well from local business and churches. We are looking forward to expanding the opportunities for our community youth each year.”
The criteria for participation is the desire to learn how to create a better future for themselves and their families. Parents must register their children by Friday, July 21. Participants will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis due to limited space.
Registration should be submitted immediately to Clarissa Pace by calling 870-460-9192 or email [email protected] or register online at safecenterinc.org. Pre-registration is required in order to attend.
