financial literacy

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.” – Cree proverb, cited in Wikipedia’s Money

Finally, help is available for men and women of all ages to ask financial questions and get some answers. Here are a few of the places where help is available:

Non-Profit Organizations
The Girl Scouts, Boys and Girls Club and JA (formerly Junior Achievement) are among those offering comprehensive financial-literacy educational programs.

The NEFE High School Financial Planning and National Coalition of Girls’ Schools and Financial Fitness For Life are among curricula offered for in-school use. As of early 2007, only nine states had some kind of financial-literacy course requirement.

For-Profit Organizations
Practical Money Skills stands out as the most comprehensive among numerous financial-institution programs that vary widely in breadth and quality.
