Financial Literacy for Kids


JC Headshot - Money 911 - croppedEarning, saving, spending, and donating: These are key financial literacy topics. They’re also activities that kids enjoy learning about and taking part in. Think about it: How many young people do you know who have run a lemonade stand, or taken part in charitable events like Penny Harvest? Despite kids’ natural interest in money, few states require schools to teach financial literacy, and fewer than 20% of teachers say they feel competent teaching courses in it, according to the Council for Economic Education. In this TIME For Kids webinar, we focused on fun, engaging, and effective ways to bring financial literacy to the classroom.

Financial expert Jean Chatzky led this information-packed webinar, presented by the Real World Literacy and the Common Core community at TIME For Kids Your $: A Guide to Financial Literacy for Kids is made possible by the PwC Charitable Foundation.
