Jerryd Bayless reiterated his commitment to financial literacy during a guest mentoring session for teenagers in Make A Difference – Wisconsin’s Money Coach program.

Bayless recently took the stage at Milwaukee’s Messmer High School for a Q&A with local teenagers on the importance of smart saving and spending habits. Teens from across the city heard insight and anecdotes from the Bucks guard on the importance of positive financial behaviors.

“To be thrust into the opportunity that I’ve been able to have in the NBA is something where it’s very important for me to become financially literate,” Bayless said. “Make sure you’re saving as much as you can each month and budget for whatever your expenses are. Make your money work for you, that’s the next step. Hopefully (these students) will learn about that as well.”
