White House Launches Money as You Grow Website and Financial Capability Toolkit

The White House recently hosted the first-ever White House Summit on Financial Capability and Empowerment. The event brought together government officials, employers, community leaders, school kids, and even NFL stars to talk about financial empowerment.

At the summit, a new, interactive tool for youth and parents to learn important financial lessons from ages 3 to 18+ was officially launched. Money as You Grow, created by the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, uses easy-to-understand language and includes behavior-changing activities around 20 key money concepts.

In addition, the Obama Administration unveiled the Financial Capability Toolkit, a guide for schools, colleges and universities, employers, and community leaders to help them create their own initiatives aimed at empowering Americans to better understand and address financial matters, from saving for retirement to managing credit.
