Brown to Host Financial Literacy Seminars at East Stroudsburg University
2/20/2014
HARRISBURG – Rep. Rosemary Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) will host two Financial Literacy Seminars in March aimed at educating high school juniors and seniors about everyday finances to prepare them for independent living. Brown encourages parents who have students of that age to consider signing their teen up for one of the seminars.

Two identical seminars will be held. The first is on Sunday, March 16, from 4-7 p.m., and the second is on Monday, March 17, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Both seminars are being held at the East Stroudsburg University Innovation Center, located at 314 Independence Road, Route 447, on the corner of East Brown Street, in East Stroudsburg. Visit www4.esu.edu for directions.

“I am hosting these seminars as part of my initiative to strengthen the next generation’s financial knowledge,” said Brown. “It is obvious to me that our whole society struggles with financial knowledge skills that could help them every day. I want to get our kids ahead of the game to develop these financial skills and provide them with information of everyday finances as early as possible – giving them the tools they need to make smart decisions.”

The seminars will be presented by the National Endowment for Financial Education. Area teachers from Monroe and Pike County school districts and Colonial Intermediate Unit will facilitate the seminars.

Seating is limited for this event. Both students and parents are welcome, and can RSVP by calling Brown’s district office in East Stroudsburg at 570-420-8301. Attendees are welcome to bring a laptop or tablet if one is available to them, but it is not required to do so.

For more information, or to RSVP, contact Brown’s district office located at 696 Seven Bridge Road, Suite 101, East Stroudsburg, by calling 570-420-8301. Event details and information on legislative news can also be found on RepBrown.com and on Facebook.com/RepRosemaryBrown.
