Financial Peace University for Teens

December 24, 2019Newsletter

Beehive has already had two successful Dave Ramsey Financial Peace classes** just for teens. We will need a minimum of 10 teens to whom we would teach the course.   It will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will be in the same building as we offer Financial Peace University for adults. For years, parents have brought their teens with them to FPU, however, this information has been prepared just for the younger folks.

  • Cost: $10 for a membership
  • When: Starts September 2, 2020, Ends November 3, 2020
  • Time:  5:30p.m. to 6:45 or 7:00 p.m.
  • Where: 1087 Erikson Drive, Rexburg, ID
  • Number of Classes: Nine

If parents and/or youth are interested, email Craig Cobia at ccobia@beehive.org or call (208)656-1000 ext. 1027 to learn more. Beehive has two teen FPU tuition rebates available. You must apply or ask for it when you pay the $10 fee up front. Then if selected, attend at least 80% of the classes, complete the assignments, and submit a one-page essay explaining how this class helped you, and Beehive will deposit the $10 into your checking account.

**Note: As it gets closer to the time when the class will start, we will let you know if it will be offered via Zoom or in person

The FPU teens class is changing spending behavior in some of those who attended.  Here are two stories:

At one of the previous classes, adults and teens met briefly together at the beginning, and one mother asked the rest of the group, “Is it really making a difference—are the teens really learning and able to apply the information?!”  Many of the teens also agreed it is helping them.  Another mother said, “Yes!  It already has made a difference.  My teen is spending less, planning more and saving.”

Real Life Story:  Steev and Olivia attended the FPU for teens class together nearly each Wednesday from September until December.  Both admitted, before the class, their spending habits weren’t all that great.  They said, “When we saw things, we would buy them, without giving it much thought.  Now we have budgets and are saving more!”  They went to a dance with each other and to save money, they made each other their own corsage and boutonniere and saved about $20!
