A New & Novel Way to Teach Kids About Money
Perhaps the results should have surprised us, but sadly they didn’t. When T. Rowe Price released the results of its annual Kids & Money survey last spring, one question stuck out like a sore thumb: “Which of the following types of financial education did you receive when you were younger?”. 41% responded with an all-too-familiar answer: “none of the above.”
At Biz Kid$, we’ve committed ourselves to filling this glaring void in our educational system. Over the last ten-plus years, we’ve created an Emmy-Award winning television series, dozens of free lesson plans mapped to state and national standards, a library of tools for young entrepreneurs, and a best-selling money book for kids.
This week, we’re thrilled to announce the latest addition to the Biz Kid$ vault of resources. It’s an interactive course that incorporates our most engaging (and yes, hilarious) video content with a load of new material, vibrant graphics, and inspiring activities.
Based off of and named after our best-selling book, “How to Turn $100 into $1,000,000,” from Workman Press, the course teaches teens how to make, manage, and grow their money. Our self-guided format allows each teen to work their way through the materials at their own pace.
Access to the basic version of the course costs $29, while a premium version packed with additional interactive materials is $49. Plus, it makes a fabulous gift for the future tycoon in your life. Preview the course today at bizkids.teachable.com.
Who knows: perhaps the next generation’s financial literacy surveys will have starkly different results.
