Students across the Mid-South participated in the Youth United Way program received advice and information to shape their financial lives during a workshop and luncheon at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Memphis Branch last week.
This marks the sixth year the Federal Reserve has hosted the educational summit, thanks in large part to the leadership of Memphis Regional Executive Martha Perine-Beard and her staff.
Perine-Beard served as United Way’s Chairman of the Board until earlier this year, and has a long and distinguished history of volunteerism with United Way.
Youth United Way students received an educational overview of the Federal Reserve system, business tips for young entrepreneurs, and a presentation on how to dress for success.
Education and financial stability are two of United Way’s top priorities for the Mid-South. Giving students practical information about money management and jobs is a big part of helping the next generation be prepared contribute at the workplace and in our larger society.
