Piggy banks are long gone

Jill

The days of the piggy bank are looooong gone unfortunately. It is hard to find coins around the house anymore, so teaching kids to save visually is very difficult. Goals, especially saving goals are one way of making this work. This course helps us to continue the saving conversation at home. Thanks.

Good idea

Barry

Most of the kids in my care have never thought of financial goals. A sign of the times perhaps! This course is helpful because it is simple to facilitate either one-on-one or in a group. Look forward to using it with different groups of kids.

A good reminder

Richard

It's a good reminder. It is relatively easy to write financial goals, the hard part is the commitment. Courses like this help build understanding and commitment. The more we talk about it with youth, the more it may stick!

Short courses get the tick

Judy

It's nice to have a short course to do with teens where everything is ready to go. Just turn on the computer, login and off we go. Love it!
