Credit For Life
Location: Ware High School, Ware, MA
On April 5, 2018, the Country Bank staff and community volunteers will be going to Ware High School to host the Credit For Life Fair for the seniors of Ware High School, Palmer High School, Pathfinder Regional High School, and Belchertown High School*.
Credit for Life is an award-winning financial literacy program where high school seniors are asked to make decisions on how to spend their money. Students role-play the position of a 25-year old adult with a career, a salary, and a credit score. Managing their own budget and seeing the actual cost of things will leave students with a whole new perspective on real-life financial management.
Annually, over 1,500 students participate in our Credit for Life program. Whether they are going into the workforce or away to college, these life lessons are relevant to all of the students.
*Please note, this event is not open to the public.
