FirstLight is celebrating by making financial education available to everyone! The FirstLight Community Foundation has partnered with a mobile game app that teaches you about money and rewards you for doing so!
The app has more than 800 modules to help teens and adults understand finances. Participants can earn points, or pineapples, that can be redeemed for gift cards to their favorite stores - like Starbucks, Amazon, or Target - and other rewards.
"By using the Zogo app, we can help prepare the next generation for a more financially secure future," said Mayra Garcia-Lopez, grants and community impact manager with FirstLight Community Foundation. "We are more than a financial institution and we want to help our member’s dreams come true."
The Zogo app covers a wide range of financial topics and is available for all community members ages 13 and up. It’s an excellent tool for people who are new to personal finance or those who want to brush up on their knowledge.
