On January 16, 2017, American Intercon Institute and School System held a Press Conference on “Financial Literacy Program” in the Sov Hong Kuy Auditorium, Lim Kim Noy Tower, Mao Tse Tong Campus. It was attended by parents, teachers, staff, students and journalists. The conference was presided over by Oknha Mengly J. Quach, MD, MPH President and Head Principal of the American Intercon Institute and School Systems.
The primary purpose of the conference was to officially launch the Financial Literacy Program, which has just been formally introduced in the curriculum of our After School Programs. Speaking at the conference, Dr. Mengly stated that, “The conference is an important event that our schools are able to widely disseminate information about the program to parents, guardians, students and general public. Acquiring proper financial management skills is one of the important majors in the 21st century skills, which will enhance students’ entrepreneurial skills.
It should be noted that American Intercon Institute and School Systems have been working in close-cooperation with Money Tree to start the course on financial savvy in order to advance our young students’ financial literacy.
