Interactive Financial Literacy Activities for Pre-College Students
High school graduates in the US are not prepared to make financial decisions necessary as adults. Lack of preparation and education leaves our society subject to a high percentage of people who lack financial success.
The earlier students are taught skills to manage personal finances and debt, the less likely they are to encounter problems later in life. Insufficient debt management skills lead to late payment or loan default, poor credit, tax seizure, wage garnishment, legal action, and even bankruptcy.
