SCLC Begins Financial Literacy Outreach In Detroit



DETROIT -The Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC)-Michigan Chapter will present a 13-week financial literacy series targeting Detroit middle school and high school students.

The mission of the series, whose curriculum was developed by MBA students at Wayne State University, is to provide students with a basic understanding of financial markets, banking systems and wealth-management techniques.

The free series kicks off at 6 p.m., Tuesday, February 1 at Greater Burnette Baptist Church (16801 Schoolcraft) on Detroit's west side. Parents may register students for the first session by contacting Greater Burnette at 313-837-0032 . Parents also are encouraged to attend and participate. Future programs will be held on Saturdays at Greater Burnette and other area churches and community centers.

Volunteers from Wayne State and local financial institutions will teach the classes.

Founded in 1970, the Michigan SCLC is a non-profit organization that addresses a wide range of issues, including health and access to health care, education, financial literacy, economic empowerment, conflict resolution, voter registration and youth development.
