It's never too early to learn smart financial habits. Kids who develop savings habits by their teenage years tend to keep them when they grow up. Enroll your little ones in Piggy Banking 101 to get their very own savings account.
Learning the Basics, our Financial Literacy for Teens workshops, provide a smart first step toward financial independence.

Financial Literacy for Teens
Financial literacy is the ability to use knowledge and skills to make effective and informed money management decisions.
Gaining the knowledge and developing the skills to become financially literate is a lifelong process. Because financial literacy is not emphasized in the education system - many kids lack the necessary knowledge and skills to become financially responsible adults.
Our Financial Literacy seminar will teach students practical money skills, budgeting, managing money during college, buying the first car, building good credit and more. To request a Financial Literacy seminar at your school, please contact the MVCU Marketing Department.
