Young Money Fights for Financial Literacy


Our friends over at YoungMoney.com are taking great strides to further promote financial literacy among young adults. As part of a recently announced Financial Literacy Program, Young Money is partnering with multiple universities and businesses to deliver co-branded magazines, both online and offline, to students and young employees.

The special editions will focus on providing a wealth of information related to personal finance, credit and debt, careers, entrepreneurship, and higher education. In addition, monthly money tips will be emailed to subscribers, and participants will even have the opportunity to speak with various financial experts via webinars hosted by Young Money.

As debt levels continue to skyrocket across the country and the average student now leaves campus with nearly $20,000 in student loan debt, it's great to see businesses like Young Money reaching out to teach our youth how to better manage their personal finances.

It's so important to the future of our country, yet we certainly can't rely on our schools to teach much of anything about it! I've had colleagues with Master's degrees that still don't know how to manage their checking accounts or properly use a credit card. How scary is that?

If you're interested in learning more about the Financial Literacy Program or signing up to receive future publications, check out YoungMoney.com today!

When she's not rating and reviewing credit cards, Elisabeth enjoys gushing over her daughter (who is her exact clone), eating out (sushi and Chinese are favs), or attempting to conquer the pilates reformer machine (so far, all attempts have been futile).
