Money. You know it’s important. Yet most young people feel ill-equipped to make critical financial decisions. And good luck getting advice – the jargon is brutal and everyone wants to sell you something. No wonder 71% of young people, like you, say they’d rather go to the DENTIST than talk to their bank.

This workshop is different. It’s about concepts, not math. It’s about how money can help you live the life you want. Through hands-on interactive simulations, you’ll learn how your money decisions impact your quality of life now and in the future. And you’ll learn how to make better choices – all stuff you need to know but never knew how to learn. It’ll even be fun, we promise!

Program Highlights

  • It’s personal – see which choices fit your lifestyle, your dreams.

  • Graphic novel format and hands on interactive simulator bring money concepts to life.

  • Learn to make smart money decisions so you can do the things you care about -- like travel, enjoy time off, support charities.

Reasons To Go

  • Only 5 states require a stand-alone course in personal finance for high school graduation.
