Financial Literacy Resources For Kids
Money Smart. Career Ready.
Our tagline is pretty simple. It’s what we do, and why we exist: to help kids understand the role that money will play in their lives, now through adulthood, while showing them the careers and jobs that suit them and (hopefully) provide financial stability.
Financial education begins at an early age. Whether it’s providing an allowances in exchanges for household chores or helping your child set up a lemonade stand, these seemingly simple exercises have a big impact on their relationship with money. Money management is a critical life skill, and the concepts of saving, earning, and investing are central to gaining stability as adults. Many parents wonder how they can teach their kids about finances, and where to find age-appropriate resources. We’ve compiled a list of resources around the web that can help educate kids.
