On April 19th Thirty Three Old Capitol Kiwanians assisted students from Southeast Junior High at the Kirkwood Financial Literacy Fair from 9 am to 12 pm. After deciding the careers they might pursue the 400 students visited 12 stations to make choices about costs they could incur living by themselves. They made choices in their housing, transportation and other expenses they would have. Most of the students did not realize all of the hidden costs they would have until participating in this program.


Our club had a great time volunteering at the Financial Literacy Fair at Kirkwood Community College with @workplacelearningconnection. What a great opportunity for our area 8th graders! We cannot wait to be back again next year! #kidsneedkiwanis #kiwanisinternational #workbasedlearning
