Let’s say you have two twins: we’ll call them Luca and Frank. Frank never received financial literacy education when he was young. Luca, on the other hand, has experienced educational programs from kindergarten and up, inspiring him to understand saving and investing, credit and debit, taxes, insurance, career prep and more. How do you think their financial habits will differ later in life?
Our newest video offers a hilarious look at what might happen. As the National Financial Educators Council states: “We should begin teaching kids lessons about personal finances when they’re very young. If we present kids with practical lessons in formats to which they can easily relate, we’ll establish an educational foundation that supports continued financial education training as they mature.”
Our infographic reveals the specifics of how to provide financial literacy education to students from kindergarten and beyond. We have incorporated the educational standards of the Jump$tart foundation, which advises educators how to teach K-12 students on the following topics:
- Spending and saving
- Credit and debt
- Employment and income
- Risk and insurance
- Financial decision making
Explore our infographic to learn how financial literacy education from a young age can make a powerful impact on the lives of students (and on your organization’s outreach efforts).
Be like Luca. Don’t be like Frank. Start young with financial literacy education.
