Celebrate MLK's Legacy with the Budget Bean Game

January 15th, 2021

As we honor the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a civil rights leader, we would also like to honor the work he did for economic justice.

In the video below, Britepaths and the Financial Empowerment Center at South County walks you through a budgeting activity called the Budgeting Bean Game, which you and your family and friends can complete on your own. It's best for ages 12 and up.

This activity teaches budgeting tools and tips, and also highlights the financial struggles that many of our Northern Virginia neighbors face, especially during the pandemic.

In the video, long-time Financial Literacy volunteer Rhonda Brown, accompanied by our Financial Coach and Trainer Martha Borowski, leads FECSoCo Director Maria Jose Cantoni and our volunteers Ryan and Matthias through the activity.
