Recognizing that being successful in today’s world requires more than reading, writing arithmetic, Liberty Charter has developed a program that will prepare young men and women for the future with real life skills that are required for 21st Century success. During the internship portion of the class students will be placed in businesses as interns. They will be given the opportunity to use all the skills they have learned in school in a real world work environment. Students will earn class credit for the hours they work. At the beginning of the course students will be given the chance to list their top three interests and they will be placed in an internship that best matches their interests and gifts. During the Financial literacy portion of the class students will work through an online financial education curriculum at www.everfi.net. Once students have completed the financial piece of the program they will have basic knowledge in the area's of credit cards, dept, interest rates, loans, saving, budgeting, financing education, investing, and credit score. The goal of this class is to give students real world experiences that will teach them tools that they can use in their lives as they grow into young adults. CLICK HERE to download the Syllabus.
