City of Chester officials will announce today that the city has received a grant to support a financial literacy course for the city's summer youth program.
The $4,000 DollarWise Grant Award, from the the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, will support a six-week paid internship for Chester youths.
The program is designed to provide hands-on work experience and professional development. There is also a financial educational component.
Chester officials and those from four other cities - Wichita, St. Louis, Kokomo, IN and Richmond, VA - learned they were awarded the grant at the U.S. Conference of Mayors this past January.
