Gateway to American Opportunities (GAO), A Circle of Ten, Inc. ~ Network for Collaboration literacy initiative, has brought Adult & Family Literacy to rural & low-to-moderate populations since 2003.  This is year five for the youth financial literacy, and made possible thanks to local sponsors and volunteer instructors from local banks.  The camps and games incorporate the FDIC’s MoneySmart* curriculum, while youth learn, do crafts, save camp dollars and shop at the camp store.
