According to recent reports, the unemployment figures for today’s youth are record-high levels, and many college graduates are suffering the consequences that come along with financial illiteracy. Student default rates are surging, and students are leaving college with over $20,000 in debt on average. The economic and debt situation these students face is negatively compounded because they lack the money management skills to financially plan for their future.
The NFEC’s financial literacy for students programs help introduce students to the essential lessons that will impact their bank account. They are designed to proactively address the common issues that young adults are faced with. Leveraging celebrities, sport stars and entertaining delivery methods, the NFEC is able to connect with students and move them to take positive action on their personal finances.
