MetaVisions, a Tallahassee-based non-profit that seeks to directly serve families and children through pilot programs and grant funding, recently partnered with Boys Town North Florida to launch a financial literacy program.
Led by Morgan Evers and Cindy Bevis Evers, MetaVisions created a curated program to teach foundational financial literacy skills, such as how to open a bank account, how to write a check, and effective spending and saving strategies. Youth learned these skills through interactive games, engaging guest speakers, and visual activities.
To culminate the end of the program, MetaVisions orchestrated a donation event. The youth were in charge of organizing and assembling donation bags with letters of encouragement, snacks, bracelets, socks, and water for individuals in the community.
Many of the items in the bags were graciously donated by Florida Senator Loranne Ausley, who stopped by for a surprise visit while the kids were packing the bags. She talked with them and shared her excitement and appreciation for the financial literacy program and the work Boys Town North Florida does.
Boys Town North Florida is looking forward to growing their partnership with MetaVisions as they continue to provide engaging programs for their youth.
