April is Financial Literacy Month, a great time to help young people get ready for new experiences like finding a summer job or taking the next step in their education. Financial literacy is also an important yearlong priority for many agencies, particularly those helping young people prepare for adulthood, funded by the Family & Youth Services Bureau.
In this slideshow, we highlight tools that can help youth achieve financial independence, and share helpful tips for adults working to instill good decision-making.
