BPM is proud to announce a dynamic partnership with First Financial Security, Inc. (FFS) to offer financial literacy to youth in our community. BPM is targeting approximately 20 schools in the Baltimore metro area to participate in the financial literacy tour. This tour is intended to increase students’ knowledge base on financial literacy. This program serves as the rungs of a ladder in preparing students for their financial future. Also, the program caters specifically to students in grades 3-12. Each category is uniquely designed and tailored for each specific age group. The partnership is unique from the perspective that it allows this initiative to be presented by trained BPM members, many of whom are experts in the field of financial services and have a passion to improve the financial literacy and well-being of our youth.
Financial Literacy Tour – How does it work
BPM will provide each school with the following options to participate in the tour:
- Option 1: One-time activity – BPM will provide a one-time activity from one to three hours on financial literacy for a class no larger than 30 students.
- Option 2: School Partnership – BPM will provide a series of visits to the school based on a preset schedule agreed upon by the school.
BPM has basic and premium programs available to partnering schools. The basic program has no associated costs or expenses. There is a cost associated with the premium program, which includes materials, equipment, or professional service fees for BPM.
