Top-rated online financial education platform offers over 50 topics for teens

Posted on August 08, 2017

SUGAR LAND, TX (August 8, 2017) – Mapping Your Future Financial Solutions is proud to announce the expansion of its financial education curriculum for young adults. Members of partner organizations now have access to 56 teen-focused learning modules on the web-based platform, with subjects ranging from basic budgeting to advanced themes such as college funding, investing, and employment-related decisions.

With an additional 160 topics for adults, Mapping Your Future is a comprehensive resource for employers, credit unions, banks, and other community groups to meet their financial education challenges and support members from high school through adulthood.

Moving towards whole-family financial wellness --- including education for dependents and younger audiences --- is increasingly important in light of low financial literacy among teenagers. U.S. teens received subpar scores in a recent international survey by the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). In fact, one in five American 15-year-olds failed to meet the level to be considered financially literate.

Individuals and families served by Mapping Your Future’s resources have access to dozens of videos, interactive exercises, calculators, and quizzes, as well as the one-on-one support of an unbiased certified financial counselor. The mobile-friendly course library can also be co-branded and is completely customizable, so organizations can modify content to accommodate the specific needs and profiles of their audience.

In addition to gaining valuable financial confidence, engagement with Mapping Your Future has been shown to reduce money-related stress and increase fiscal efficacy, according to a survey conducted in cooperation with Samaritan Health Services of Corvallis, Oregon.

“Financial coaching provides a positive impact to many aspects of our client’s lives,” said Cathy Mueller, Executive Director of Mapping Your Future. “By reaching individuals at an earlier age, we can exponentially increase their financial capability to help them avoid future mishaps and achieve long-term economic security.” To learn how financially fit individuals benefit your organization, or to schedule a demonstration, contact Mapping Your Future Financial Solutions at 1-800-374-4072 or visit MappingYourFuture.com.
