When you learn, teach. At our best, we are all teachers. - Maya Angelou
It is our belief that it's never too early to start teaching good financial habits. We're committed to educating our youth so they may grow up to be financially responsible adults, which is why we come out to different schools and organizations to teach financial skills to K-12 students. We teach from a variety of topics including money management, credit cards, loans, how different accounts work, and more.
However, we cannot do this alone! These conversations start with the people kids look up to — their parents, their mentors, their teachers. So, we've created a list of programs that are easy for teachers to implement in their classroom, and fun for the students! What's more, these materials are free for schools and community youth programs!
