Perlmutter Celebrates Financial Literacy Month with Young AmeriTowne Opening Ceremonies
“Young AmeriTowne is a tremendous program that provides invaluable life skills for young people, and it was a real highlight to take part in their Opening Ceremonies,” said Perlmutter. “By exposing kids to economics, business and finance at a young age, Young Americans Center for Financial Education and its programs are helping today’s kids succeed professionally and personally as they become adults.”
Young Americans programs are purposely designed to enable youth to prosper in our free enterprise system. Young Americans Center for Financial Education, a Denver-based nonprofit that develops the financial literacy of youth and young adults through hands-on, real-life experiences is proud to have served over 678,000 youth since 1987.
“Young Americans teaches financial responsibility to youth up to the age of 21 years old in a unique and creative way,” says Rich Martinez, President and CEO of Young Americans Center for Financial Education. “We are the only bank in the world just for youth, and through programs like Young AmeriTowne, students obtain real-life, hands-on experience around money, entrepreneurship and financial responsibility to set them up for lifetime success.”
“As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, I appreciate the opportunity to recognize Financial Literacy Month and to highlight the importance of financial literacy and healthy financial habits,” said Perlmutter.
