Financial Foundations: 7 Things Your Students Need to be Shown About MONEY


The cost of education is growing. The cost of NOT being educated about MONEY is growing even faster. These days students are graduating with more debt and little to no savings more than ever before. A recent study reported that 80% of students failed a recent financial literacy quiz.
In this program, Jonathan Medina teaches students the 7 mistakes students must avoid in order to create a strong financial foundation. Students will walk away with planning strategies for financial and academic success. More students may be going to school, but if we do not teach them financial literacy we are only closing the academic gap, not the success & achievement gap. Together we can help first generation students build financial wealth.
Learning Outcomes
As a result of attending this program, students will learn:
  • Learn the 7 most common financial mistakes made by students.
  • How to make simple strategies for Financial and Academic Success.
  • The most important people to connect with about finances before and during college.
  • The biggest thing your students and families can do right now.
