CINCINNATI, Ohio (March 22, 2022) —
Dear United Way friends,
Thank you to all those who made our 2022 Unite for Teen Literacy event a smashing success!
More than 2,000 seventh-graders from 70 Cincinnati Public Schools classrooms learned valuable personal finance lessons from 80 volunteers. Those volunteers dedicated 440 hours to the cause – a value of more than $12,000 in time and materials.
This year’s lessons were both virtual and in person. Our seventh annual event featured speakers discussing the principles of personal finance, including the importance of planning and living within a budget, as well as talking to students about their career pathways.
United Way of Greater Cincinnati works to bring economic well-being to all families and individuals in our region. By teaching young people the basics of personal finance and the importance of building healthy money habits, we seek to increase family financial stability, a cornerstone to life success.
We could not do it without our volunteers! Their time and talent provided students with knowledge and tools they can use for a successful future.
