Learning Why Money Matters

Our Teen members participated in a two-day workshop hosted by OneWest Bank, a corporate supporter of the Club through our annual “It Just Takes One” campaign. Day one saw our teens take part in a Credit and Savings workshop, while day two included a field trip to a OneWest bank branch in Old Pasadena. At the bank, our teens learned about the fundamentals of opening a bank account and maintaining a good standing balance on it. This special workshop was part of our Money Matters program, which promotes financial responsibility and independence among Club members. The program offers practical tips and activities to help teens learn to balance a checkbook, create a budget and save and invest for college and retirement.
