I've seen young adults who have no idea how to balance their checkbooks/bank accounts. They don't know how to compose a resume. They don't know anything about credit checks, they don't even know how to look for finding information about getting loans. Their parents did all of that for them and never bothered to teach them. And now, they have to actually know this stuff, and don't know the first thing about it. They get heavily into debt and think the answer to that is going bankrupt and moving back home with mom. They think that, because they don't know any better. And they don't know any better, because their mom didn't think independence was a lesson she needed to teach.

Sponsored by Verizon Wireless, Invest in Yourself was supported by the and Worcester County, in partnership with the Maryland Commission for Women, The Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Prevention Coalitions of Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset Counties, and the Life Crisis Center of the Lower Eastern Shore.
