Teens and Their Financial Futures


Meeting Students Where They Are

There’s no denying it’s an interesting time to teach financial education to teens. Research shows this generation’s relationship with money starkly contrasts the Millenials we taught before them. Gen Zers are incredibly frugal, conservative spenders who are highly cautious of debt.

They’re also the first workforce to grow up in the gig economy. More than 60 million Gen Zers are expected to join working America in the next few years, and many will opt for freelance work instead of a traditional 9-5.

During the webinar we’ll explore:

How should financial literacy adapt given these new money matters?

What top financial concepts and concerns are on the minds of teens according to research?

What are the key tenants to a comprehensive personal finance program in high school?

Attendees will receive:

  • A certificate for 1 hour of professional development
  • Free access to the new EVERFI: Financial Literacy for High School lessons
