Just in time for Financial Literacy Month, San Diego County CU (SDCCU) is hosting SDCCU Biz Kid$ events online to help engage students in distance learning environments with fun and interactive ways to learn about money, finances, and business.

Topics for the online event include: Crash Course on Starting a Business, Entrepreneurship; How Do You Get Money?, Credit and Debit; and What’s Your Money Personality?, Financial Basics. Biz Kid$ presentations will be held on Wednesdays as part of SDCCU’s Financial Wellness Wednesdays.

“With many students still out of the classroom and learning at home, it’s a great time for parents and teachers to incorporate some fun educational ways for kids and teens to learn about finances, money, and business”, said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “Helping students learn financial basics to begin building the foundation for a successful financial future is a key part of our community outreach, which is why we are pleased to offer SDCCU Biz Kid$ events online.”

SDCCU launched the program in partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education and the County of San Diego, in support of Live Well San Diego, in 2015. Biz Kid$ is an award-winning, comprehensive financial literacy program focused on teaching students how to use credit wisely and about the importance of saving, budgeting, investing, and giving back to their communities. The Biz Kid$ program and all episodes are based on national standards for financial literacy and entrepreneurship education and have been mapped to individual state standards.
