With experts warning that today’s staggering unemployment may lead to a prolonged recession, financial literacy is more important than ever.
That’s why the University at Buffalo School of Management and M&T Bank have partnered—since 2006—to help local high school students develop critical personal finance skills through the free MoneySKILL® program and the annual MoneySKILL Mania competition.
At Buffalo’s Hutchinson-Central Technical High School, retired 1st Sgt. Stephen Frazier has been a longtime supporter of MoneySKILL, using the online program and playing Mania each year with his Hutch-Tech Junior ROTC cadets. This year, he went even bigger—playing MoneySKILL Mania on Kahoot!, a game-based learning platform, with cadets from schools around New York State and in Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island.
