Volunteers from Warburg Pincus teach financial literacy with sixth-graders
January 22 - NEW YORK - BELL and volunteers from the New York office of Warburg Pincus spent an afternoon with 60 scholars, teaching 6th graders about financial literacy. Volunteers helped scholars think about the importance of savings and money management - connecting education and profession with purchasing power.
"I had fun picking out my life. I want to save up to live in a nice place. Thank you, Warburg Pincus"
- BELL Scholar
Each scholar envisioned his or her career path, and worked in a small group with the volunteers to plan a budget for their life. Scholars debated whether to forgo the nice penthouse apartment for extra vacation money, and how they could afford necessities like food while still being able to buy all their favorite video games.
Warburg Pincus volunteers generously gave their time, energy and skills to help scholars feel connected and informed. They also donated resources for scholars to take home and practice financial literacy with their family.
Scholars were very excited to host Warburg and share a big THANK YOU to the volunteers!
