About 100 students from Memphis high schools such as Booker T. Washington, Melrose and White Station spent Saturday (April 5th) preparing for their financial futures.
The Planning Your Dreams Summit was held at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Memphis Technical Training Center, where the teens focused on improving their understanding of financial terms and learning how to budget and manage their income.
The summit was hosted by The RISE Foundation, a nonprofit that empowers Memphians by improving their financial literacy skills. The teens who participated are members of the RISE Foundation's Goal Card program, an incentive-based program that requires goal setting and improvements in grades, conduct and attendance.
