Teens learn money management

ONALASKA, Wis. (WXOW) - Area teens got a lesson in money Sunday as part of Altra Federal Credit Union's Teens and Money seminar.

More than 30 teens ages 13 to 17 learned things like how to fill out W-2 forms for work, how to maintain a budget, keep a checking account, and prioritize their spending.

Danielle Anderson, the Youth Coordinator at Altra said, "When they get that paycheck they might not understand what they need to do with it right away, they may end up going out and spending it all and not having a savings later" that's why the Teens and Money seminar is important.

The seminar was free, Altra hosts the Teens and Money seminar every April.
