FINANCIAL BASICS: MONEY CONCEPTS FOR STUDENTS
By increasing financial literacy among the youth we aim to accomplish two objectives. 1. Increase and raise awareness of the need for minority communities to have access to financial resources and education. 2. Build a foundation in which the youth are able to take this content and make informed decisions that will launch the process of building generational wealth, assist in making decisions that will create ownership and eliminate debt. Throughout this course we will discuss 3 main principles that I have identified as starting points that are both bite sized and will allow actionable steps to be taken after completing. These principles include Budgeting, Investing, and Credit and Debit.
