Title: An Interactive Group Approach to Teach Youth about Budgeting
Friday, November 17th, 2017
This session reviews CFPB's developmental model for Youth Financial Education, then explores an experiential market-based approach to teaching youth about budgeting that that addresses the teaching/earning strategies recommended by CFPB. Participants engage in one round of the teaching/learning technique and discuss its usefulness for various settings, as well as potential modifications to increase its relevance for their clientele. The forum also includes an introduction to the newest module in the award-winning Money Talks program, Living on My Own, which is available online at no cost to users.
