What Are the Benefits of Financial Literacy Skills?
When adolescents have financial literacy skills, they can:
Adolescents are often taught to receive a quality education and obtain a "good" job, but aren't taught the financial skills necessary to manage their paychecks. A high income does not translate into financial security without financial education.
It's much easier to stay out of debt than to dig your way out of debt. Equip your adolescents and young adults to transition into adulthood with the confidence and abilities that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
