Financial literacy for teens

April is quickly approaching and bringing National Financial Capability Month (formerly known as National Financial Literacy Month) with it. This is a month to recognize that finances are a monumental aspect of teens future well-being. Considering this, we have assembled some resources to help you make use of April’s financial spotlight. 

TRIO Educational Opportunity Center - Discuss FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), career options and school selection with TRIO Educational Opportunity Center advisor Melody Lawrence in a CoLab Room at the library. 

Teacher Online Resource Center - The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) have assembled a list of online financial education resources for teachers and educators to use in classrooms in a one-stop-shop. 

Financial Literacy and Education Commission - I’d also recommend perusing the Financial Literacy and Education Commission’s website for additional resources. 

To book in-person speakers, check with credit unions and financial institutions that frequently volunteer their time. Often, community-based institutions have designated staff for outreach and programs prepared to discuss personal financial capability.
