How much money and frustration could you have saved?

The good news is you can give this gift to your teen with Money Smart Academy.
Money Smart Academy goes beyond teaching teens how to make a budget and saving for the future (though that is covered too!)

Your teen will learn how to wisely align their money to values such as generosity, security, and fun, so they can get a head start on creating a fulfilling life without experiencing painful financial mistakes that follow most young adults for years.

In Money Smart Academy, teens are excited to learn about personal finance because they can apply their knowledge right away and experience the rewards that result from practicing strong financial habits.
Teens learn how to manage their spending, start saving for something they are excited about (such as a car or a travel opportunity), and discover how their decisions today affect their future.
The combination of experiential learning with the guidance of a professional financial coach creates an unparalleled educational experience.
Not only do teens gain head knowledge, but the mentorship they receive solidifies positive money habits and offers an individualized approach to each student's interests and goals.
Furthermore, the weekly small group coaching format provides a rich opportunity to learn alongside fellow teens as they process their discoveries together.
