If you have been invited to either of the 2 events below, but are not a graduating senior or a 14-18 year old, it is because I thought you may know some teens this age. I have made the event public. Please share this event & invite people in this age range, even if you aren't able to come. Thanks!! Dade High has made an announcement, but only a few seniors were given a flier with the info so far due to End-Of-Course testing going on this past week, and the seniors last day was Friday. 9th-11th grade will get a flier this coming week, but PLEASE spread the word by inviting people! If you have any questions, you can contact Amanda Clark of DADE FIRST - Family Connection at 657-7273 or email@example.com.
FOR GRADUATING SENIORS: This Tuesday, May 19th at the Dade Co. Public Library from 1pm-2:30pm there will be a VERY good free financial class! MANY people graduate high school & hurt themselves financially b/c they don't know the basics of money management & using credit wisely. Before getting out in the 'real world', come to this class to learn about managing your finances, how to build credit w/o risk, and the ins and outs of student loans, all while listening to entertaining true-life tales of what NOT to do. The instructor is from the non-profit Consumer Credit Counseling Services. DOOR PRIZES WILL BE DRAWN AS WELL!!
FOR 14-18 YEAR OLD TEENS: May 26th & 27th in the DCHS Cafeteria from 10am-2pm both days, First Things First will be leading a class. Lunch will be provided both days & a $25 Walmart giftcard will be given to EVERYONE who completes the 2-day program! You are REQUIRED to register to attend this class since lunch is provided. It is a work-study program for teens who want to explore awesome career options, while also improving their future by adding positive relationship skills, subtracting negative influences, multiplying dating choices, & dividing time to accomplish goals.
