Young Americans ~ Center for Financial Education

I recently visited Young Americans Center for Financial Education and received a guided tour and explanation of the many ways this non-profit organization helps educate children on the importance of financial responsibility. I have to say, I was quite impressed. The lessons are staged in real-world, interactive settings and offer lessons that even adults might appreciate including: exchange rates in different countries, various investment opportunities and the many ways to effectively balance a budget considering economic conditions.
