50/50 Leadership Honors Financial Literacy Program Graduates With Virtual Ceremony
Keynote Speaker, Anne Marie Molina, will celebrate with year long Money 101 graduates and mentors
By: 50/50 Leadership
50/50 Leadership will be commemorating the graduates of the Financial Literacy Programs, six of which are female, two are male, ages ranging 19 to 28 years old. The organization will also be honoring the mentors, who volunteered to guide the participants through their personal finances.
Graduates will have the opportunity to share how the Money 101 program has impacted them and their future and the mentors will have the opportunity to share a positive experience with their mentees. The mentors will receive a gift for their work.
"It is important to acknowledge the graduates of the Money101 Program" said Pauline Field, Founder and Chair of 50/50 Leadership. "Most of the people who complete it have had very little acknowledgment of their accomplishments throughout their lives, and to have completed this year-long program is, indeed, an accomplishment."
