Teenagers were busy creating budgets, writing checks and balancing checkbooks Monday in a kind of financial boot camp for students.
The program, put on by Travis Credit Union, is known as Mad City Money and is geared toward providing hands-on training to teach basic money management in a four-hour session.
The credit union has conducted the program annually since 2009, with several sessions each summer, according to Sherry Cordonnier, Travis Credit Union’s corporate relations director.
“We’ve served so far about 2,000 students over the summers,” she said.
