As part of its Fall Financial Series, the Farmington Library will host a workshop on teaching teens and college-age adults about money management. This event will take place on Tuesday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m. at the Main Library, located at 6 Monteith Drive.
This workshop for parents of teens and college-age young adults will focus on the important role parents play in encouraging their children’s financial education and nurturing them to become financially responsible and independent adults. Young people need to be well prepared for their futures as financial decision makers. Discussion will explore opportunities for parents to help their children gain financial knowledge and increase their financial capability.
Presenter Faye Griffiths-Smith, a Financial Educator with UConn Extension, has extensive experience working with diverse audiences, both adult and youth, on a variety of financial topics. She leads the Connecticut Saves Campaign promoting increased savings behavior among Connecticut citizens and is a past chair of the Family Economics and Resource Management Section of the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.
