Financing Higher Education Workshop

Clay County 4-H hosted a Financing Higher Education workshop on October 23rd, 2018. Participants learned about how to write a resume, cover letter, personal statement, and practiced interviews. Michael Rathjen from Vystar Credit Union gave a talk about finances, saving for college, and things to consider when deciding what type of higher education is right for you. The participating youth and parents enjoyed interactive activities that took them step by step through the resume and cover letter writing processes. A trail mix bar was a yummy way to remind youth to “Focus on the big things and you will find time for the less important things… But it doesn’t always the other way around!” These students chose to focus on the “big thing” and learned ways to finance college!
