BGCDT Club members from Meadowdale Elementary School recently held their Graduation Day Ceremony for completing a very unique program offered at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township, called “Money Island”. The “Money Island” Program, sponsored by First American Bank, is an interactive (computer based) financial literacy program that educated our Club members on the basics of savings, spending and investing…all through a fictional character that the Club members can create.
This multi-week program builds basics of financial literacy each week, leading up to the completion of the program and Graduation. Each “Money Island” graduate is presented a brand new t-shirt, certificate, goody bag, and a $25 savings account at First American Bank.
Thank you First American Bank for “investing” in our BGCDT Club members!
