Bank of America Hosts Financial Literacy Workshop at BGCD: Volunteers from Bank of America visited Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester this week to host Financial Literacy workshops presenting their signature Better Money Habits curriculum for those teens taking part in the Career Prep program.

The volunteers covered topics such as budgeting, credit, savings and much more. These informative sessions, led by experts in their respective fields will help ensure the participating teens are armed with the knowledge they need to manage their finances moving forward.

Our thanks to our friends at Bank of America for their continued support of Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester and our members.

Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street visits BGCD: Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Education Director, Rosie Gill, stopped by the Club’s Safe Summer Streets program to lead a class for teens last week.

Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street and BGCD have been working in partnership over the past 2 years to teach nutrition and culinary skills to Club teens and will be doing so again this upcoming school year. Our
members enjoy having the chance to learn and improve upon valuable skills such as these through the
programming we offer here at the Club.
