Credit for Life offers financial literacy training


NEW BEDFORD – The Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School hosted the first Credit for Life Fair on Jan. 23 that offered experiences in financial literacy to 560 students in the junior class. The event was done in collaboration with Bay Coast Bank.

“An important part of life after high school is financial security. This exercise illustrated for our students all of the ingredients that go into financial well-being,” said Linda Enos, superintendent of the technical school.

The credit fair gave students a chance to try-out decision-making in instances such as purchasing a car, renting an apartment and buying furniture.

“It gives the students an opportunity to test-drive some of what they’ll face once they enter the real world,” said Monica Curhan, of BayCoast Bank. “It’s a real eye-opener for many of them.”
