Age-appropriate financial education for younger people - getting them ready for financial fitness in adulthood.
St. Cloud, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- Too many people open a checking account or get a credit card with a lack of insight at the impact of the power at their fingertips and how simple choices can lead to the chaos of financial calamity or the comfort of financial security.
The key to financial education is to start early. Teaching money matters to our kids and teens is one of the most important things any parent can do to secure a bright future for those that come after us. Inspiring kids and teens with age-appropriate adventures in earning, saving, spending and sharing money while developing a strong financial foundation can mean the difference between financial independence and financial ruin for young people as they start their adult life.
College freshman are excited when they get to campus. They smell the freedom in the air, the electricity of independence and the promise of a future formed by the next few years of their life ahead. Too many of these new college students are naive to some of the tactics banks use to put checkbooks and credit cards in the hands of these young adults who are ready to pursue a higher education while many are essentially illiterate in the forums of finance. That’s why it’s so important to teach children at a young age about money. Kids and teens will start to develop habits that will follow them through their adult lives. Everything they learn about money will help prepare them for their real world financial challenges and hopefully will help them to avoid making wrong decisions that could result in years of financial burden or even a lifetime of crushing debt.
The Financial Adventure is a hands-on program for kids and teens engaging them in an entertaining yet educational financial journey that continues month to month in an ongoing effort to broaden their financial acumen that is as rewarding as it is fun.
The Financial Adventure team combines the acquisition of sensible money management with fun and rewards along the way. They cultivate critical financial skills in a fun and rewarding environment by taking day-to-day financial tasks and distilling them into easy-to-understand concepts younger people can easily follow and appreciate.
Crowdfunding is sought not so much for their modest funding goal of $1,125 but more for receiving input and feedback from supporters that care about the financial future of our kids and teens.
This crowdfunding campaign ends on October 24, 2014.

About Financial Adventure, LLC
