    The Center for Financial Empowerment, the nonprofit organization founded by SCE Credit Union, empowers high school youth and young adults by teaching real-life financial lessons through activities and classroom workshops. One of the most basic workshop topics is about making choices with money.

    Making healthy financial choices involves understanding the difference between needs and wants, as well as the concept of opportunity costs. While it may be important foundational knowledge for teens, everyone can benefit from a reminder of the basics from time to time.
