YES! Weekly promotes ReBuildUp Summer Events

Thank you to YES! Weekly for spreading the word about all the great events we’ll be holding this summer!

“Economic Literacy Series Open to Greensboro Teens”
by Whitney Kenerly

“Summer is all fun and games for a teen until they realize they have no idea how to balance a checkbook. With a heated national discourse around the financial struggles of post-grads squeezed by student debt and low-income jobs, the Greensboro Public Library and Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union have teamed up for an Economic Literacy Summer Series.

The series consists of programs held from June 7 to August 5 designed by ReBuildUp, a company based in Greensboro that provides resources to “inspire the current and next generation of entrepreneurs about economics and business.”

Economy, Jr. @ Kathleen Clay Library Sat. 6/7 2-3:30pm sponsored by Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union

Kicking off the Economic Literacy Summer Series sponsored by Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union is Economy, Jr. at Kathleen Clay Library Saturday, June 7th 2:00-3:30pm FREE for area teens.

Economy, Jr. provides students with insight into both sides of the economic coin by having them choose at the start of the game whether they want to play as a customer spending a month’s paycheck from their chosen career on necessities such as housing, groceries, child care, and more or as a merchant selling these products to customers to cover daily overhead and hopefully post a profit.
