“Bringing awareness to the importance of financial education and wellness allows us to reach more members each year, and we believe that children are never too young to learn about finances,” said Pelican’s Jessica Sharon. “We wanted to host this event to give parents additional tools and resources they can use with their families. Encouraging healthy money habits at a young age helps set a solid foundation for financial success and independence in the future.”

This workshop is completely free and open to the public, and Pelican membership is not required to attend the workshop or ask questions.
