August 15, 2006 8:18am CST
I would like to start an after school school. teaching budgeting & everyday finance for the young,interview skills for older teens, perhaps extending this to homework help. This is in the early stages of thoughts and would like some idea of regulations etc

I tried to do this type of work after I graduated with my degree in Education. Please check with your local Board of Education as to the educational requirements you must have to operate such a school in your district (some states require this). I also would check with the local / state business licensing commission to see if your are eligible to be a "after-school" or "daycare center". They have stringent laws on what is can be considered a school or not. Bunch of red tape? Yep, but take advice for one who did this - get thru it and it'll be priceless.

I dont know where you live but it is a great idea, The young ones dont know how to manage money. I have a 21 yo who always is short at the end of a pay period. I would suggest that you approach one of the local schools to see if they can establish an after school program of some sort. Failing that the local library is a good venue for groups to meet. Another idea is to approach your local council. they are usually interested in new group activities for the youth of today.They could also have some handy resources at hand for you to use as well as funding.

You should do it! Kids grow up now days thinking money grows on trees. My son is 26 and still spends money like there's no tomorrow! (I really did try to teach him) Where would you have this school? It would be a lot easier to make an arrangement with a school, if you can. Private schools have fewer regulations. If you have it in your home you will probably have to get a child care license.
