Maui Economic Opportunity’s Business Development Center hosted a financial literacy class for 30 teenagers to learn about budgeting, credit, saving – and the cost of raising children.

The four-day, in-person class ended Wednesday in Wailuku with a graduation ceremony. Students received a certificate and some goodies provided by Hawai‘i State Federal Credit Union.

Due to the popular interest in the class, morning and afternoon sessions were held. The instructors were Lianne Peros-Busch, MEO business development specialist, and Jaimie Dukelow of Hawai‘i State Federal Credit Union.
