Your comments regarding the fact that the 18-25 yr old age group is the fastest growing age group filing for bankruptcy hits close to home. I have recently given up a long time profession to follow a passion. That passion being to work with children and young adults in an effort to help them become financially literate. It is amazing to me how much material is available, much of it for free, that somehow is not finding it's way to the intended users. I'm now in the process of researching different avenues to bring this project together and am requesting input from anyone interested in the subject. Curriculum content is not as difficult as finding the right vehicle to use to reach those who need the information. It seems that there is material available for the public schools to use but they are often times too busy to include another subject into the already full schedule. What about a place where children and young adults could go to with or without their parents to be made more aware of the joy of money in their lives. Would parents pay for this type of service? Or would parents be helped by having more useful tools to use at home? If there is anything I learned from all of my years coaching youth or teaching Sunday school that is that kids sometimes will listen to anyone other than there parents when it comes to life advice. Any comments that you might have or suggestions would be appreciated. Feel free to leave any comments at Jnab2001@aol.com. Thank you.
