)-- Howard Slater, MBA, MSFS®, ChFC®, CLU, a partner of Cedar Brook Financial Partners LLC, one of the region’s largest independent wealth management firms, is dedicated to teaching young adults the financial and business knowledge they need to make smart financial decisions the rest of their lives.
For the fifth year in a row, Mr. Slater is offering a financial literacy program for seniors at Laurel School, an independent school for girls in Kindergarten through high school in Cleveland, Ohio. Over sixty young women are attending the four-session program.
2014 is the second year Mr. Slater has led the Junior Achievement (JA) program at Fuchs Mizrachi, an independent school for children 18 months old through high school. The JA Company Program is a comprehensive business, entrepreneurship and economics curriculum for students in grades nine through twelve.
“I’ve always enjoyed the opportunity to teach young adults skills they can apply the rest of their lives. These volunteer opportunities provide wonderful platforms to help young people see entrepreneurship and financial skills as fun, empowering and avenues to future success. Financial and business skill building opportunities are often not available to young people. I’m dedicated to teaching tomorrow’s leaders the skills they need to avoid poor financial and business decisions later in life,” explained Mr. Slater.
