Junior Achievement teams up with EverBank for financial literacy lesson at Father & Kids Event

Junior Achievement of North Florida
On Saturday, June 27 we had the opportunity to partner with EverBank for a financial literacy station at the All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience at EverBank Field.
EverBank Field
Each station offered fathers and their kids different football drills, fatherhood advice and plenty of fun and games. Each station was named for a different football position, and kids got a glimpse of what it takes to be a football player.

At the EverBank Quarterback station, they warmed up with an exercise quarterbacks do – the duck walk! Fathers went first, then their kids showed them how it’s done.

A football-themed story using JA money bucks reinforced the concepts of saving, spending and sharing money and the role of each in sound money management.

A dad and his son came up to our staff between station rotations, telling us how his son already knows the value of saving. For each “A” he gets in school, he gets $5. For every “B” he gets $4 and for every “C” he gets $3. The dad, admitting that he personally should do better managing money, couldn’t wait to tell us how proud he was of his son. His son saved the money he earned for good grades and bought an iPad!

All Pro Dad, the fatherhood program of Family First, strengthens fathers’ relationships with their children and provides useful, everyday parenting tips.
