LA Jump$tart Coalition's Financial $marts for Students and Families Financial Event - Monday, March 10, 2014
The Louisiana Jump$tart Coalition and East Baton Rouge Parish School System have partnered to bring pertinent financial information to families with high school students, regardless of their school affiliation or parish of residence.

The Financial $marts for Students and Families event is free and open to all high school students and their families Saturday, March 22nd from 9:15 AM to Noon at the EBR Parish School Board’s Instructional Resource Center (IRC) on S. Foster Drive.

The workshop shares a wealth of information, resources and reference material with families about how to prepare financially for life after high school.

"We are trying to start a productive dialogue between parents and their high school students about what to expect during the transition families face when their youth start their journey to financial independence and the challenges of life after high school,” says Jump$tart COO, Debbie Lapeyrouse.

There will be a $500 scholarship drawing for a graduating senior and a series of fun, interactive and informative sessions.  To begin, an undergrad and graduate student will share their experiences and stories about what to expect when entering college and graduating from college.  Also, families will get the inside scoop on financial aid, college planning, making ends meet, setting up a realistic financial plan, and how to start meaningful financial discussions between parents and youth.
