Of course, you wouldn’t send your child out into a blizzard without a coat. So why let them navigate adulthood without the vital skills to manage money and face life’s biggest challenges?

In fact, the reality is stark: the majority of students leave high school without a basic financial understanding.  Which leads to long-term problems such as job insecurity, relationship issues, and even mental health challenges. Actually, financial literacy is not just about understanding money; it’s about securing a happy, stable future.

The Facts Speak for Themselves

  • Lack of Financial Preparation Leads to Adulthood Struggles: As a matter of fact, a study by the National Endowment for Financial Education highlights that only 24% of millennials demonstrate basic financial literacy. Emphasizing the need for early financial education to prepare better for adulthood challenges.
  • Strong Link Between Financial Literacy and Personal Well-being: Research from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) indicates that individuals with higher financial literacy are less likely to face financial hardships, citing a direct correlation between personal financial management skills and lower stress levels.
  • Financial Education Influences Career Success: According to a report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), individuals who received early financial education are more likely to create successful careers and less likely to be unemployed.
  • Early Financial Education Boosts Entrepreneurial Skills: A study by the Kauffman Foundation found that early exposure to financial concepts boosts entrepreneurial skills, with financially literate youth 1.5 times more likely to start their own businesses.
  • Financial Literacy Reduces Debt and Increases Savings: The National Financial Educators Council reports that high school students who were required to take financial education courses were significantly more likely to have lower credit card debt and higher savings rates in their later years.
