|These contemporary times require that our youth become better prepared for the financial challenges of tomorrow. Financial literacy education is the key to responsible consumerism, meaning financial knowledge should be taught at a young age, as soon as a child extends their hand for money. Yes, cultivating financially savvy children is an enormous challenge for parents to be confronted with these days. Kidzonomics® is here to assist with financial educational sessions to raises students’ financial consciousness by empowering children to engage and analyze “realistic financial” situation. Kidzonomics’ teaches children how to utilize financial literacy terms and exposure to money management concepts. Children will be equipped with the necessary financial skills for them to have that conversation about money with their parents and actively observe the day-to-day money activities (trips to the bank, store, purchasing/leasing a car or the ATM machine) that impact short-and long-term household financial wellness.|
The program can be modified to be grade specific and/or implemented as an after-school or Saturday program.
