Kids and Teens Financial Education

Greater Nevada Credit Union wants to help all community members learn good financial habits, because an investment today may pay dividends later in life. We encourage all kids and teens to take advantage of the free resources below.

Why Does Early Financial Education Matter?

Annual results from the National Financial Educators Council’s National Financial Literacy Test show that we have a lot of room for improvement when it comes to financial know-how by our youngest generations. So, it might not be surprising that the majority of Americans do not budget regularly and are struggling with credit card debt.

The good news is that there’s a lot you can do as a parent to improve your kid’s financial literacy scores, especially for high school students who are on the brink of financial independence.
