Hands on Banking
Subject Areas:
    Guidance/Personal Growth
    Mathematics

Join this 50- minute session that will help your students get smart about credit, security and money management in general.

This is especially important for this age group as they begin to get part time jobs and explore what they do with their earnings.

Also, with today’s economic challenges, it’s more important than ever for teens and young adults to know about personal finances and managing credit. Teaching them how to best use credit will equip them to handle adult financial responsibilities, from using credit cards and applying for car loans to managing a mortgage later in life. These facts underscore the need:

-Only 59 percent of the young adults in Generation Y (ages 18 to 29) pay their bills on time every month, according to the National Foundation for Credit Counseling.

- The Jump$tart Coalition reports that four in 10 high school seniors believe that credit cards and car loans have lower interest rates than mortgage loans.

-Only one in three parents have taught their teen how to balance a checkbook, and even fewer have explained how credit card interest and fees work (Jump$tart Coalition).

Hands on Banking is free and is designed for both self-paced, individual learning and classroom use. Free instructors guides can help you (the teacher) prepare, extend or modify lessons and assess progress.

This program does and excellent job of offering the learner real-life examples and problems that are built into the interactive software. It makes learning about money fun!
