In an ongoing effort to support and further financial education, Yolo Federal Credit Union is holding its fourth annual Financial Boot Camp for teens and young adults ages 16-22.

#x201c;Very few states require financial literacy to graduate from high school,#x201d; stated Jenee Rawling, Yolo FCU president and CEO. #x201c;Students tend to learn the hard way by accumulating debt without an understanding of how to budget and manage their money.#x201d;

#x201c;The financial boot camp is our way of helping to combat these issues and bring financial awareness and understanding to the youth of Yolo County,#x201d; he added.

The boot camp will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, July 27 and 28, from 10 am to 3 pm at 266 W. Main St., Woodland.

Topics such as budgeting, money management, investing, borrowing, building credit, and protecting yourself from fraud will be covered. In addition to Yolo FCU staff, there will be guest speakers to cover topics such as car buying and protecting oneself from fraud.

Subjects will be split up over the two dates and the boot camp will include lunch. Those attending both days will be entered into a raffle for an iPad Mini.
