Convening on Youth Financial Education in the Bay Area

Thursday, June 7, 2012, 12 – 4:30pm

What is the state of youth financial education in the Bay Area? This convening brings together policy makers, community-based organizations, financial institutions, service providers, school officials, teachers, and parents to discuss and learn about the impact of financial education among youth and young adults. We will share, collaborate, and strategize about how to better equip more youth to build healthy financial futures.

Release of Research Findings: Effectiveness of Youth Financial Education
EBALDC and UCCE will release the results of an 18-month research project. The study sought to evaluate whether a stand alone, school-based financial education course, such as Money Savvy Youth, could produce statistically significant improvements in students’ attitudes, knowledge, and financial behaviors about money, as compared to control groups who did not received financial education. We hope findings from this research project will contribute to the knowledge gap around youth financial education and highlight the importance of teaching money management to youth at an early age.
