For Extension Educators: Youth Financial Education Toolkit Back »

Written collaboratively by Carrie Johnson (former SDSU Extension Family Resource Management Specialist) and Donna Bittiker.


Financial education for today’s youth is an extremely important undertaking. There are concepts that need to be understood and practiced for adults to lead financially healthy lives. Learning these concepts while younger may help alleviate some bad financial decision making later in life. As youth educators, we have a unique opportunity to help teach basic and complex financial concepts to youth across the state.
