It’s never too soon to start instilling strong financial habits in young people, and Chalkboard Financial, Lebanon YMCA, and Jonestown Bank have teamed up to do just that.

Chalkboard Financial, a start-up non-profit with a mission of empowering students through financial education, held a #PreventDebt workshop that met once a week over the course of 8 weeks.

Those in attendance tackled subjects like financial planning, budgeting, understanding debt and what credit is and how it works, and compounding interest, among others.
