New York's Junior League never stops finding ways to give back. They are committed to encouraging children to participate in charitable events. This month they've got some great educational programs going on with a focus on philanthropy at an early age.
Two finance-focused events for kids caught our eye. In an age of Goldman Sachs excesses Bernie Madoff madness, we think you'll be interested in raising ethically-minded children.
First, learn about ways to teach your children to volunteer. Learn about money management and new ways you can serve your community in fun, kid friendly ways. They'll have games, interactive lectures, A Making Cent$ Obstacle Course and a store our Children can purchase the items they would like to donate to a worthy cause.
