 A good way to help people get – and stay – on solid financial footing is to teach them the basics before they start making the big purchases in life. On Tuesday night volunteers gathered at 16 Beacon to get the inside scoop on teaching high school students how to make smart financial decisions through this year’s M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program.

Financial Literacy Committee Co-Chair Doug Rosner (Goulston & Storrs PC) and Veteran Volunteer Adrienne Walker (Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C.) walked volunteers through each of the classroom sessions and gave the group tips on activities to engage the students. This year, volunteers will be heading out to 11 high schools in Eastern Massachusetts to teach on topics including personal finance and budgeting, using credit, and buying a car.
