South Bend students learn to budget

Posted:

Some South Bend students are learning how to budget for the future. 

Students at Jefferson Intermediate and Swanson primary took part in the junior achievement program.

Financial experts from Crowe Horwath taught students the difference between net and gross income, how to manage expenses and more. 

Organizers say the response from students has been encouraging.

"It's very activity based learning, they will remember those decision points they are making today as they go through the budgeting or making decisions on needs and wants," says Karol Griffin a JA board member.

In total, close to 1000 students participated in the program.
