Western Heritage CU earns Biz Kid$ Education Grant

This grant objective is to develop a financial literacy program for youth in middle and high schools throughout the panhandle of Nebraska.  The credit union will partner with ten schools and will provide Biz Kid$ materials and in-class presentations or activities on a monthly basis.  They will also partner with area high schools through their FBLA, DECA, and/or other business groups to provide guidance and support to high school kids to go into the middle schools and begin teaching Biz Kid$ modules to the students.  The unique wrap around program will enforce a deeper understanding of financial literacy among high school youth by providing opportunities for them to teach younger peers in the middle schools in the area by utilizing Biz Kid$ materials.
