While the Financial Literacy Online Workshop for teens and young adults is a great resource for personal financial education you might be wondering how it all works.
It’s an unfortunate situation that the majority of public schools do not teach personal financial education. With the end result being generations of Americans making choices that lead them to dire financial straights. It’s dead on like giving someone a book but not teaching them to read.
One in four American adults has student debt and that amount will grow over the coming years. Seven in 10 college graduates are now graduating with student debt, with the greatest burden falling on people of color, low-income borrowers, and women.
When it comes to understanding how to be smart about money, we need to make wise financial decisions that will allow us to avoid excessive debt and provide us with adequate savings to reach our goals. It is not just about making the money, it’s about keeping it. Some good advice and proper planning can make money work for you!
