On April 19th I presented a class on Financial Literacy at Bishop Brady High School in Concord, NH. It was a lot of fun! The students were great. They asked great questions and were very engaged. I look forward to continuing to work with dean of students Mr. Bergeron and Mr. Hubner to continue to assist with their new personal economics curriculum.
We used the webpage BFA Financial Literacy that I created as a resource for the students. I personally scoured the web to find various financial literacy resources that were easy to follow and consolidated them on this page.
I have done a great deal of research on financial literacy for high school students. I will continue to collaborate with others with the goal to teach our youth (and adults) about financial literacy. It astounds me that we live in a capitalist society but we don’t teach our kids the basics about personal finance. As my wife Chris noted; “we teach our youth about an obtuse triangle but….” not how to save, balance a checkbook or credit cards?!?
There are some great free resources online like the non profit MoneySkill that provides an easy module approach to learning online for middle school and high school students that a teacher (or anyone) can oversee. There are too many resources online to mention that are free, including one from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
If you would like me to speak at your school or collaborate with your school’s faculty please contact me at email@example.com or 603-625-9900.
