Financial Literacy

MACPA members partner with the public to educate young people about financial literacy through our partnership with Junior Achievement of Central Maryland. By participating in volunteer speaking initiatives and sharing our expertise, we help bring greater awareness about money, financial responsibility, job readiness, and entrepreneurism to those who will lead the future of our economy.
