When young people are left to learn their own lessons about spending and saving, even a few missteps may adversely affect their long-term financial future. Financial literacy education provides students with an opportunity to explore practical topics such as delayed gratification (needs versus wants) and the power of saving (investing in yourself). Learning about these subjects can better prepare young people for the day they venture out on their own financial journey.
Our latest video looks at the benefits of saving in a new light. “Save the Day” was made specifically for investors who are just starting out on their financial journey by Forum Future, our program to help new investors prepare for early financial milestones and plan for long-term goals. We thought it was only fitting to share the video during Financial Literacy Month.
