Sara Johnston and DLG are once again revving up for another week of CARE (Credit Abuse Resistance Education) this April, but are currently welcoming volunteers. CARE is a financial literacy program intended to educate students to help them avoid making mistakes that could lead to bankruptcy and financial disaster. If you or someone you know would be interesting in presenting at a Fayette County High School this April, please contact Sara Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that you’ll check back next month to see what DLG has planned for April!
