Financial Literacy

SummerWorks is more than just a job. In addition to gaining work experience, we want to make sure all our participants have the skills they need to manage their finances – and make informed decisions with their new, hard-earned paychecks.

Earning your own money can be exciting and rewarding, but it is also a responsibility. There are a lot of ways to get into financial trouble, but there are also a lot of easy things you can do to make sure that your hard-earned money stays with you, and doesn’t go to paying fees, interest, or other costs.

This is why we strongly encourage you to complete our online financial literacy trainings.

To help our SummerWorks interns gain the financial literacy, we have teamed up with EverFi to provide you with a series of short but useful online lessons. Each one is about 3-5 minutes. In total, completing the first 7 modules should take about a half hour.
