Why teach financial literacy to kids & teens?
Like most adults, you weren’t taught about money in school or at home, and if you had been, it would have made a significant change in your adult lives today. Until every child in this country has been exposed to money management, we will continue to see major challenges in our economy and society.
Kids and teens need to be given an opportunity to make strong, confident and informed financial decisions in their adult lives. It all starts with sound financial knowledge and the general understanding of how money works. Also, college students need to be able to understand how to budget their
allowances or income received from part-time jobs.
They also need to be able to know the reasons why they should avoid credit cards and other unnecessary debt.
The absence of financial literacy often leads to making poor financial decisions, the development of poor financial habits, and can have an adverse effect on the well-being of an individual, family, and community - financially, emotionally, and physically. Let’s be the change today!
242Financialista powered by Jumpstart Bahamas will be offering a series of individual and group financial literacy games and workshops to develop money awareness and skills for our kids and teens.

1on1 Sessions w/Kids
One-on-One Sessions with Kids (Ages 10-17) - $95
In this package, the first lesson we teach your child is key money principles to live by now and when
they grow up. After that, we help your child or teen distinguish between needs and wants which is
critical, because it teaches them how to make wiser financial choices with their money, whether it is in
the form of an allowance or monetary gift. Then we wrap up with learning how to budget their money by
saving a little first and spending the rest wisely. Not to worry though, we make this a fun and engaging
session, not leaving your child or teen bored at any point. You can feel free to pop-in during the
session to see their progress along the way. This usually takes about 90 mins to complete and they will
leave with resources to use at home.
