Money Smart Week kicks off in El Paso

Saturday, April 20, 2013 - 11:57pm

Money Smart Week El Paso will be from April 20-April 27, 2013.

The public awareness campaign is designed to help people manage their personal finances.

Organizations, businesses and financial institutions volunteer their time to provide free seminars on different financial topics in English and Spanish.

Jennifer Yager, Education Manager with Junior Achievement, hosted Saturday’s session which was targeted at college students.

"My goal for the college presentation was to make students aware of the costs of college, first of all, how to start budgeting for college, how to put away savings, especially for after college. It takes 3-6 months to find a job after they graduate,” said Yager.
