Educate Your Children
Most young people lack the financial know-how and skills to make sound financial decisions, yet everyone needs these crucial life skills for their economic well-being as well as for our nation’s future. Our complex financial and consumer market system, and the many new options and information available over the Internet, heighten the challenges for youth to be financially competent and responsible caretakers of their financial resources.
Kids $ Kash is a 4-issue consumer education program supported by 4-H. A leader’s guide supplements information in the youth issues. Kids $ Kash is designed for at least 4 sessions. A leader or helper is encouraged to expand or rearrange the unit outline to meet the needs of the group, whether it is a community or school enrichment program. Each youth issue has a general topic introduction, purpose statement, and objectives for each activity in the unit/issue. For each issue, the leader’s guide has these major components: teaching aids, procedure, and looking ahead.
