Financial Literacy is a unique program that empowers and teaches children about budgeting, careers, currency, and investing to the next generation. This program gives back to the community by teaching kids from a young age how to spend money on their needs,increasing their analytic and planning skills and lowering the possibility of them being in high debt when they are adults!
Elementary School Age
These are the skills kids of an early age should focus on: Counting and basic math skills. Being comfortable with numbers, identifying coins and bills, learning about needs versus wants. Being able to grasp the concept of spend, save and give.
Middle School Age
Financial Literacy classes teaches students the basics of money management. Savings, debts, investments and budgeting are a few of them. This knowledge lays a foundation for students to build financial habits, practice them very early in life, and avoid the complications that lead to lifelong financial struggles.
High School Age
Most high school students have limited financial literacy education prior to college. They are on the cusp of living on their own and making important financial decisions that will impact their futures.
