April is financial literacy month and this year is a huge and unexpected reminder that exposes the money management education we don’t have. The United States has some of the worst statistics in the western world. We’re not financially fit and we continue to lag behind in bridging that financial education gap.
It’s time. In fact, it’s past time to make the changes that are desperately needed.
As part of the solution, The Wealth Club® program was launched over ten years ago. We teach and promote wealth literacy as an engaging educational answer to the financial literacy gap and more. We define wealth literacy as the ability to understand and manage personal and financial well-being™.
Too often money is equated with happiness – and this belief is often proven false. Some young people fantasize about the riches of their favorite celebrities and grow up with the impression that success equals lots of money in the bank. They eventually find out it doesn’t eliminate all challenges and problems.
We aren’t taught how to ensure our spending money lasts through the end of the month. We are not taught to engage in daily habits to ensure our personal wellbeing either. This is why we emphasize personal wellbeing as an essential part of the wealth equation.
Again, what’s missing is adequate education.
A wholistic approach to building wealth in its fullest definition makes a significant difference.
The Wealth Club’s goal is to expand our reach by teaching and encouraging many more individuals to succeed through the transformational power of wealth literacy training.
To this end, in Fall 2020, we will offer comprehensive instruction to train additional coaches, school educators, and youth peer educators to bring our engaging, fun and practical curriculum into their schools and organizations.
Until then, we are excited to share with you our complimentary Wealth Literacy tips in a Video Series premiering April 26th – 28th at wealthliteracy.org
To Wealth Literacy!
