The lack of financial literacy has reached epidemic proportions among America’s youth. In today’s world, many teens work for their own money according to a study by the RAND youth poll teen spending power in 2015 was just over $91 billion. Studies have also shown that many teens have no idea how to handle money.
Many young people fail in the management of the first consumer credit experience, established bad financial management habits, and stumble through their lives learning by trial and error on how to handle money.
“Teens often spend money unwisely due to poor financial habits.”
The mission of Alliance Financial Ministries, Inc.’s youth programs is:
“To provide America’s youth with the financial decision-making tools they need to create financial independence”
Alliance Financial Ministries, Inc. offers several unique community-focused programs that are designed to inspire and equip youth with tools to make good financial decisions. The overall goal is to provide youth and young adults with financial information at an early age. The lessons learned during our programs will have a huge impact on how students handle their future income and their quality of life as adults.
