Holly gave a fantastic presentation about budgeting and financial literacy to youth in our Unaccompanied Refugee Minor program. Her talk was engaging and informative, and I think it was highly beneficial for the youth to hear such important information coming from someone who is a professional in the field.
Some of the youth in attendance have struggled with financial management in the past; others are brand new to the country, and are unfamiliar with the concepts of credit vs. debit cards, credit scores, and interest. Holly’s presentation was extremely useful for all of these youth. Holly provided examples from her own life to highlight the concepts she was talking about, and was very accommodating of the interpreters who were there to assist the newly arrived youth.
