Entergy's Annual Beat The Heat Program

Budget for Living: Teens

In July, Interfaith had Budget For Living: Personal Finance Workshop for Teens, a personal finance workshop for ages 15 and up. This class mainly focuses on learning how to make your own budget, understand your income, project future expenses and learn how to create a checking and savings account. Learning how to budget as a teenager is essential and will provide better decision making to ensure financial stability.

This workshop is sponsored by Woodforest National Bank and presented by Cody McGuillion, The Woodlands Branch Manager.
