CPAs in the Classroom
November 16th, 2012

Along with over 1,500 other CPAs in central Ohio, Elaine visited a 5th grade class to improve financial literacy among elementary school children by playing FETCH, a monopoly-style board game that teaches students the importance of planning, budgeting, and supporting charitable causes.

The 2012 FETCH program was the largest ever, supported by over 1,500 volunteers who visited 494 elementary schools in central Ohio.  Over 12,000 students participated in the event to learn how a little (fun!) financial education really can teach children healthy financial habits they may carry with them through life.

Watch Elaine’s video, recorded with her fellow CPA volunteers, thanking the participants for their work in this important area:
