Last month, 22 volunteers from LEAF Commercial Capital, a leader in the equipment leasing and finance industry, paired with Operation Hope to promote the importance of financial literacy to the students of Roosevelt Alternative High School in Norristown, PA.
While utilizing the Banking On Our Future curriculum, the volunteers implemented modules which emphasize the magnitude that budgets, banking, credit and investments have on their futures. With stimulating presentations and thought provoking activities, the students earned a clearer understanding of what it means to be financially responsible.
Among the volunteers was CEO, Crit DeMent, who described the event as, “an exceptionally rewarding experience for the LEAF team members that participated that day. A lot of time and effort went into making this event successful and the volunteers should be commended for their efforts.
The students at Roosevelt Alternative High School were enthusiastic, engaged and very interested in learning the simple steps needed to becoming money smart. I speak for all of our volunteers by saying that we look forward to many more events with Operation Hope.”
The employees of LEAF are actively dedicated to contributing to a monetarily sound future for their community’s youth and look forward to continuing their affiliation with Operation Hope.
