Money Sense

Money Sense teaches teens money management essentials.

This flexible program, available in multiple in-person and virtual formats, introduces teens to financial basics like banking, creating a savings plan, managing a budget, and maintaining healthy credit. Typically taught in three 90-minute lessons, the program’s content can be presented by trained volunteers or directly by the educator. In addition to the lesson-based program, we offer Money Sense On Demand, an extensive library of student-directed online learning modules on an array of personal finance topics.
