FINANCIAL LITERACY 

Preparing

the Next Generation

Being Good with Money Doesn't Come Naturally

The topic of money can seem huge and overwhelming and it doesn't help that most High School curriculums don't cover practical finance skills.

Actually, only 17 states require schools to teach some level of financial literacy.

That's why we developed Money 101,
