Parents want the best for their children, but despite good intentions, many children reach adulthood with limited financial knowledge. Without prior exposure to, or familiarity with, personal finance, generations have lacked the confidence and the capabilities to achieve financial well-being.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
– Benjamin Franklin
With experience and familiarity, children and young adults develop the self-confidence to engage in behaviors that help them meet their goals and achieve financial well-being.
Financial well-being according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau:
Having control over day-to-day and month-to-month finances
Having the capacity to absorb a financial shock
Being on track to meet financial goals
Having the financial freedom to make choices to enjoy life
The Financy curriculum provides practical instruction that makes learning about personal finance engaging, interactive and even fun. Yes – fun! Your children are already economic decision makers. The nine-course curriculum focuses on offering foundational information on career, income, banking, taxation, saving, investing, credit, home finance, insurance and retirement.
Knowledge alone does not always equate to behavior. The curriculum includes on and offline activities that allow kids to practice key financial literacy skills.
As your family engages with the curriculum, it will spark additional and ongoing conversations, allowing parents to shape their children’s financial values.
