Among the highlights:
- Library Hours - engaging children at Public Libraries in educational games, songs, storytelling, and other financial education activities.
- Financial Fair - for families filled with activities for all ages to engage in discussions with individuals about their financial needs and concerns.
- Business Symposium - geared towards financial education needs in work places where business professionals make presentations on the themes followed by a panel discussion.This event is a signature event throughout the islands and a big hit.
