Welcome to Why Money Matters for Professionals and Volunteers!
How did you learn about managing money?
Who taught you about the basics of budgeting, saving and investing?
Why did you learn about insurance, mortgages and buying a car?
In most cases, these types of skills are not learned until we are in the “real-world” – most teachers have not been teaching students about these kinds of financial topics. It’s time for a change, these students are tomorrow’s leaders and the earlier we can encourage them to get involved in budgeting, saving and investing the better off our community will be!
We must work together to educate our students, our future leaders!
You understand the value of financial education. Our community and its economy suffer from individual’s uninformed financial decisions. More education is required, but teachers cannot do this alone - We need mentors and advisors from the community to get involved. We need people like you!
- Teachers and students will benefit from your experiences and appreciate a fresh perspective from a professional in their community.
- Simply sharing general knowledge about the importance of finance and your own stories of financial success or failure will enlighten students to understand they have choices and choices have consequences.
