On July 26, 2021, DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation, Princeton NJ, Visions and Pathways, Bridgewater, NJ and Kevin Whelan from NJ CASA joined forces in support of our collective missions to help at-risk youth develop personal finance skills by offering a FitKit Personal Finance workshop. The workshop, underwritten by cashflownavigator.com introduced important life and personal finance skills to a group of at-risk youth age 16-21 involved in the Visions and Pathways Transitions to Adulthood Program. By offering this workshop we hope to have provided some basic skills as food for thought as young men and women transition from dependence and foster care, to independence.
DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation's (DMFLF) mission is to prepare today’s students for a lifetime of financial responsibility through engaging programs delivered to schools and communities. Through our FitKit student-centered multi-sensory financial literacy curriculum designed by a team of highly skilled educators, DMFLF is working to close the financial literacy gap while helping to educate, empower and help at-risk youth overcome life’s challenges
