Today's youth often enter the 'real world' unprepared for the financial challenges that await them. Unfortunately for many, this leads to a lifetime of debt and struggle. The Money XLive event is designed to combat financial illiteracy and gives high school and college-age youth an exciting way to pick up practical entrepreneurship and personal financial education lessons.
Money XLive (http://www.MoneyXLive.com) is taking place at the Grove of Anaheim on February 27th 2009 and brings together sport stars, celebrities and other entertainers to provide an inspirational personal financial education in a way that entertains and educates.

This personal financial education event is produced in an MTV award show style environment and includes live performances by Think and Kelley James, the dance crew Kaba Modern and DJ's. Money XLive and the National Youth Financial Educators Council's multi-media, financial literacy, course take a holistic approach to helping young adults hone their personal financial education skills necessary for them to succeed in life.
