Being smart about money isn’t always easy. Staying smart about money can be even harder, especially for teenagers headed to college.
That’s why Provost Academy Colorado is teaming up with CollegeInvest and College in Colorado April 21 – 28 to present Money Smart Colorado. This is a variety of free classes and events that help consumers learn to manage their personal finances will be offered throughout the state during the week.
"Money Smart Colorado sounds like a great way for parents and students to look at their financial future and hopefully stay out of massive student loan debt," said Lisa Garcia, Community Development Manager for Provost Academy Colorado. "With college costs continually going up, I think families need to stay ahead of the game."
