Youth Financial Management, Literacy, and Physical Activity with StoryWalk®

StoryWalk® is an activity that provides an opportunity for families to read story books together and build literacy skills while enjoying physical activity.  Learn how to put together story boards focusing on financial management to help children build money skills, habits, and attitudes that can serve them well as adults.  We will discuss how to create a StoryWalk®, grant and other support resources, how to incorporate StoryWAlk® into Extension efforts, and evaluation tools.
