Every year since 2002, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago sponsors an initiative called Money Smart Week that encourages and supports libraries, schools, businesses, and other organizations that host programs that want to help students and people in communities across the US be better with manage their finances.  Programs can deal with a wide range of topics such and credit and debt, budgeting, saving money, preparing for retirement, and a lot more.  MGA libraries participate each year with our own programs targeting mostly to students, and you can find Money Smart Week materials online as well.

This year, Money Smart Week activities were virtual.  This guide page includes video links to presentations from several finance organizations.
