Financial Fitness for Life

Several studies suggested that America’s youth needed a financial workout. In partnership with the National Council on Economic Education and the Bank of America Foundation, the Center presented Financial Fitness for Life. These workshops provided parents of K-12 students with a personal-finance curriculum, and coached them to talk with their children about earning an income, spending, saving and investing, using credit, managing money, and making financial decisions. This training provided a foundation that to help prevent poor financial decisions that often take years to overcome.
