EXTENSION CONNECTION: Teach children how to manage money

Published: Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at 04:48 PM.

It is important for youths to have a basic understanding of money management. Teaching these concepts early will prepare them to have their own bank accounts and monthly income.

The UF/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learnby- doing approach to help youths gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens.

Creating safe, inclusive learning environments involving caring adults and using the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system’s expertise and resources help us do this.

Contact the Okaloosa County Extension Office, 689-5850, for more information on how to join 4-H.     

Haley Worley is an agent at the Okaloosa County Extension office in Crestview.
