Skyrocketing gas prices, reduction in sub-prime loans and credit market worries are hitting lower income households disproportionately hard. Announcing the ÂMovinÂ On UpÂ contest. Ten disadvantaged high school and college-age youth will win a financial literacy course that provides them with the practical financial education needed to enjoy financial security and Âmove on upÂ out of their current financial situation.
High school and college-age youth that grow up in poverty bear many financial burdens including college debt. Everyday these disadvantaged youth are sent out in the Âreal worldÂ with dangerously little preparation for the financial realities of life. This can ultimately lead to a lifetime of stress and financial hardship.
As the leading young adult financial education expert, Vince Shorb (http://www.VinceShorb.com) explains, ÂTeaching practical financial skills to youth in the juvenile hall system I learned that many lack the money skills necessary to successfully make it on their own; this can lead to risky behavior, like crime.Â
Shorb is launching the ÂMovinÂ On UpÂ contest to get his course in the hands of people that need it, but otherwise may not be able to afford it. Contestants must be under 25 years old and have a financial need. Contest details at http://www.freeby30.com/articles/movin-on-up.html.
Shorb will be selecting ten winners to receive his online multi-media course ÂFinancially Free by 30Â which gives young adults a real world financial education.
ÂNo matter what their background is everyone deserves the opportunity to learn about money,Â states Shorb. ÂI was motivated to create the ÂMovinÂ On UpÂ contest after a conversation I had with one of the incarcerated teens. He was prepared to deal drugs his whole life but with some basic lessons he felt confident he could take that entrepreneurial spirit and focus it on something positive.Â
Vince Shorb gives young adults real world financial and investing advice on how to become free of debt, free of financial worry and financially free. Broke at the age of 26, Vince made his first million within six years and now passes on what he learned to provide youth the knowledge they need to be successful in todayÂs society.
