4-H Financial Fitness and Fun 2022

Feb. 24 - April 28, 2022 (Thursdays)
6:15 - 7:15 p.m. ET
Zoom

Learn about setting financial goals, saving, budgeting, banking basics, credit and so much more through lessons, activities and games. This is a repeat series from fall 2021.

Nearly half of Americans (49 percent) who have received more than 10 hours of financial education report spending less than they earn, compared with 36 percent of those people who received less than 10 hours of financial education. The goal of 4-H financial education is to improve these outcomes by helping youth understand and develop the skills they will need to be financially smart adults.
