Be a Money Mentor

Sowing the Seeds for Lifelong Skills

Building a foundation of good financial habits at an early age enables people to make the most effective use of the resources they have. Incorporating financial education into everyday home, school and extra-curricular activities reinforces the importance of being “money smart.”

As an authority figure, a role model and a teacher, you have a unique opportunity to serve as a money mentor to a large number of youth. In this important capacity, you can help them to:

  • Be independent and self-sufficient
  • Make informed decisions and choices
  • Understand how their moods and expectations can affect how they save or spend
  • Use good judgment and look at consumption in a realistic way
  • Acquire the skills and knowledge to be financially secure

With activities that relate to their course of study, you can help guide them along the path toward financial literacy.
