About Talkin’ Money
“Millions of American teenagers graduate from high school every year without a basic understanding of how to manage their money. As they venture out from under their parents’ protection for the first time, what awaits these young adults is an increasingly complex society that asks that they make immediate and sometimes irreversible financial decisions- decisions that will likely impact their livelihoods for years to come. Unprepared by teachers or parents to make those decisions, the consequences can be quite severe.”
