Foundation Helps High School Students Prepare for Their Financial Futures
At a time of widespread economic turmoil and financial challenge, it is more important than ever that children are given the knowledge and skills they need to manage their money wisely and to make smart decisions for the future. In response, the Actuarial Foundation has released “Building Your Future,” an engaging and relevant financial literacy curriculum to help teens master the foundational elements of personal finance and to prepare for life after high school.
