World of Money Teaches Teens the ABCs of Financial Literacy
The Child Care Corporation and the 1199SEIU National Benefit Fund’s Financial Wellness program teamed up with World of Money (WOM) to offer an online financial education program for the children of 1199SEIU members. Through the program, children age 15 to 17 learn the ins and outs of the financial world through a self-guided online curriculum designed to give them the tools to develop healthy money habits, avoid common money mistakes and make better financial decisions in the future.
This spring, 352 students enrolled in a four-part financial mini-series with topics including Money Mindset, Broke Celebrities, Needs vs. Wants and Rich vs. Wealthy. Students access a special World of Money curriculum, along with videos, quizzes and activities to help them better understand money matters outside of a traditional school setting.
