Non-profit gets grant to expand program for middle school RCSD students

Rochester Business Journal
July 24, 2013

Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Rochester is expanding its community outreach to a new location.

The non-profit group is extending its partnership with the Harley School's Horizons program and will be providing education to students in grades 6 through 8 in financial literacy to both the school and Horizons at Warner.

The financial literacy class is created and taught by CCCS of Rochester education specialists at Harley, and CCCS officials have deemed it a "huge success."

“CCCS of Rochester is grateful for this grant, which will help us to continue educating the middle school students of the RCSD,” said Lynette Baker, director of marketing at CCCS of Rochester, “Studies have shown that teaching young people responsible financial skills can help them become financially successful adults.”

The Horizons Student Enrichment Program serves low-income students from the Rochester City School District in kindergarten through grade 8. The programs are an affiliate of the Horizons National summer learning program, which employs an experiential model of teaching focused on reading, writing and math.
