The most powerful way to break the cycle of poverty in our central city is through education, exposure, and empowerment.
With these in mind, Upsilon Mu Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (r) is sponsoring its fourth annual AKA Money Camp for Kids to provide financial literacy skills to Milwaukee youth.
Co-sponsored by the Milwaukee Public Library, Q. C. Holdings Companies, and Associated Bank, the camp will be held from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Monday, June 21st – Friday, June 25th, 2010 at the Washington Park Library located at 2121 North Sherman Blvd in Milwaukee.
This enriching, unique, and much-needed camp for the Milwaukee area will be offered FREE of charge for 35 youth (ages 12-14) or youth who are entering grades 6 through 8 this fall semester.
The following workshops will be presented: budgeting, banking, investing, saving, career choices, and entrepreneurship. Field trips to area banks and local businesses are also planned.
Students will learn techniques in goal setting, communication skills and effective presentation skills as they develop entrepreneurial projects during the week. Each year the camp is increasingly more successful and well received by parents and students.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and applications are available at each city library, the Milwaukee Public Library website at www.mpl.org and on the sorority’s website www.akaumo.org .
