The NAACP Economic Programs Twitter Town Hall provides a space for members of the Youth and College Division to chat about major themes within economics through social media. The Twitter Town Hall happens once in the fall and spring semesters.
Objective: The Twitter Town Hall provides basic insight and resources to equip NAACP youth to be well versed in economic topics and prepared for major financial decisions. During the event, students will have an opportunity to speak with subject matter experts from Wells Fargo and NerdWallet.
We encourage students to continue the conversation beyond the Twitter Town Hall by inviting subject matter experts and Wells Fargo representatives to workshops and forums on your campus or meeting site.
Topic: The Fall 2019 topic is Financial Health. This conversation will guide students on how to stay in their best financial shape while navigating to and through college! Discussion points include budgeting, saving, student loan (management) and best practices.
