Money Smart for Young Adults
The FDIC Money Smart for Young Adults curriculum helps youth ages 12-20 learn the basics of handling their money and finances, including how to create positive relationships with financial institutions. Equipping young people in their formative years with the basics of financial education can give them the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to manage their finances once they enter the real world.
Money Smart for Young Adults consists of eight instructor-led modules. Each module includes a fully scripted instructor guide, participant guide, and overhead slides. Modules range from 90-110 minutes if taught in their entirety. Classes for young adults include:
- Bank On It
- Check It Out
- Setting Financial Goals
- Pay Yourself First
- Borrowing Basics
- Charge It Right
- Paying for College and Cars
- A Roof Over Your Head
