"It’s all the tools kids need to get financially independent." - Jeannine Glista, Biz Kid$ Executive Producer
SEATTLE (PRWEB) March 26, 2019
Did you know that a minimum-wage worker would need 2.5 full-time jobs to purchase a house? Or that the average college student graduates with $28,650 in debt? Meanwhile, 60% of the same high school students required to sit through hours of calculus and chemistry have never taken a financial literacy course.
The Emmy Award-winning Biz Kid$ team just launched a new way for kids and teens to take control of their financial futures. It’s an online course for teens and tweens based on their bestselling book, How To Turn $100 Into $1 Million. The course brings the book’s engaging content to life with video clips from the show, vibrant graphics, and downloadable worksheets to enhance the experience.
Each chapter includes sketch comedy, animation, and real-life stories from young entrepreneurs.
“It’s all the tools kids need to get financially independent,” said the book’s Co-author and curriculum Co-creator Jeannine Glista. “Kids can work at their own pace, whenever it suits their schedule.”
Access to the basic version of the course costs $29, while a premium version bolstered with additional interactive materials is $49. The course is now live at bizkids.teachable.com.
