Becoming a Financially-Savvy Teen/Young Adult
It's important for teens and young adults to learn about money, especially when many of us adults grew up in households where our parents didn't talk about money, and we weren't allowed to ask. Before anyone starts using a credit card, they should know the power they are wielding in their hands.
This nine-session course teaches the basic facts about money - its value, budgeting, tools for managing money, and how to develop habits of saving, starting right now! For a cost of $50, you will be able to log into each live class, or watch the recordings for ones you have to miss.
Optional research between class sessions allows you to start to understand the dimensions of finance for themselves. By the end of the course, you will feel like managing your finances is less like a dark alley and more like a bustling street of opportunity that you know how to navigate.
