GRADE 9-12

Teens aren’t typically known for their financial responsibility—yet many are already using complex financial strategies. For example, shopping at the mall calls for cost comparisons, and saving for a skateboard requires budgeting. To learn about responsible money management, it’s important to take a look at the building blocks of financial decision-making. In this lesson, students will examine the spending decisions they already make, then examine real-life spending scenarios—and research, analyze and present their recommendations to the class.

Students will…
Explore personal financial choices
• Learn to make informed financial decisions
• Consider what it means to be financially responsible

• Explore the purpose of financial goals
• Discover the role of decision-making in achieving goals
• Examine common obstacles to achieving goals

Understand the concept of creditworthiness
• Research consumer borrowing
• Compare various types of car loans and lenders

A positive relationship to money is a gift that keeps on giving.

Money is an activity and a mystery. It’s hidden away behind apps and cards, making it even more challenging to explain and much less navigate. With limited financial education available, growing economic disparity, and 80% of families in debt, learning about earning, spending, saving and giving  early is more important than ever. 

We help our parents teach their kids about money whether we know it or not. Kids learn from our behaviors, words, and actions. They learn from peers and advertising and cultural norms with core values set by age seven. By nine, they’re sorting out who they are and how they can show up in the world. This is when they connect learning to earning. 

Our camp is geared towards teaching your child about financial investments, economics, and financial management on locations (if you are near one of our offices) or online.
