Discover - Pathway to Financial Success

Traditionally, we’ve given kids the skills they need to become readers and writers, scientists and mathematicians. But schools and families have often ignored one skillset that is crucial to making it in the real world: financial education. Below, you’ll find the resources you need to help put teens on the pathway to financial success, including research to support the need for financial education, classroom success stories and ways to fund a financial education program at your school. Explore our links and then share them with a colleague—because this topic is too important to ignore.
