Teaching Good Money Habits Early
PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 15, 2019
It’s never too early to learn good money habits! In partnership with Junior Achievement, our Houston associates recently taught kindergartners the JA Ourselves financial literacy program. Junior Achievement at International Leadership of Texas (ILTexas Katy K-8) is a charter public Title I school that prepares students for exceptional leadership roles in the international community.
Our volunteers used storybook characters in read-aloud and hands-on activities to introduce the role people play in an economy. Through engaging volunteer-led activities, young students learn about individual choices, money, the importance of saving and giving, and the value of work.
