Communities In Schools of Atlanta Hosts Financial Literacy Workshop for Middle Schoolers

Joquita, our Site Coordinator at Bunche Middle School, created a virtual financial literacy workshop for her students. In partnership with Roark Capital, 45 students from grades 6 to 8 were able to learn about topics such as budgeting and using credit wisely from some of Roark’s team members.


Students were taught how to read a check stub and understand payroll deductions. Additionally, students received Visa gift cards, a treat bag, a budgeting journal, and a book about finance for children in order to maintain the lessons learned from this workshop.



Thank you to Roark Capital for this amazing partnership and continued support of our students and families!
