I would tell [people] that this class can be used as a important tool, starting point, or even continuation of their financial knowledge. I also think that in-class discussions were quite useful.

Did you find the program engaging and worth your time?

98% said YES!

There were several things that I had either not considered, or was simply very good to refresh and build upon. Things that were relevant to me or will be in the near future like buying a car, housing or interesting topics like insurance, identity theft or compound interest were reasons why this class was quite a good tool that I'll be able to use in the near future.

Financial Coaching Designed Just for Teens

the secret to getting teens engaged is to make it relevant to them right now

Teens don't have to wait until they grow up to experience the consequences of money decisions. They earn money, manage their spending, start saving for something they are excited about, and get to discover how their decisions impact their future as the character they play in the game. There's no risk since it's play money and all gain since they learn so much in the process. Any questions, hurdles, or results they experience in the game get addressed in the live coaching sessions.

I genuinely felt excited to learn something new and practical that made me feel more prepared for my life right now.

What happened in the game?

My brother and I picked out a character, did the happiness scale, and chose a job. First day on the job, payday, and we set up a savings plan, (it was hard to know where to put the money.) I wasn't exactly sure where to put my money, so I'm curious to see how it plays out.

Go beyond what's on the shelf

Customize the experience for what you need

Each base program can be tailored to different needs and interests. They all have fun and informative content that is delivered through activities, videos, and video game adventures. Everything is packaged with live, on-line sessions with a professional financial coach. Family packages have an additional series of sessions for just the parents (either privately or in a group program).

Teens gain valuable skills and the mentoring they receive solidifies positive money habits that aim them toward financial confidence and a fulfilling life.

The coaching conversations provide a rich opportunity to learn individually or alongside others as they process their discoveries.

Parent and Student Guides are provided so you can engage in the program with your teen and talk about money together, even if you don't feel confident about the topic of finances.

My favorite part was how I was able to do my work throughout the week, which would spark things I was curious about, and then I was able to have a real life conversation with an expert that was not only able to answer all my questions, but bring up new questions that I hadn't thought of.
