This year, Belmont’s Out of School Time (OST) program partnered with Empify, an organization that provides financial literacy education for students and adults. OST’s 7th and 8th graders completed Empify’s Money in the Middle program. Through practical and real life examples, students learned the basics of banking and personal finance. The program concluded with a trip to New York City, where students visited Wall Street and Twitter’s New York office. Shanisha Mitchell, Belmont’s OST Director, loved watching her students learn and grow through this unique and exciting experience.
