The main reason I started Freedom Sprout was to change the course of history… when it comes to kids and money.
I’ve talked about how the schools don’t really teach personal finances and other things missing from the school curriculum. I’ve also given some practical ways you can teach your kids about things like budgeting, investing, saving money, and plenty of related topics.
Now it’s time to talk about what all of this is leading up to.
I started the Freedom Sprout YouTube channel to offer a series of free courses to teach kids about money. You can check out the channel here. And please subscribe while you’re there to see the new videos we publish weekly and to get the free finance course videos in the future.
After I release the finance course videos, the goal is to create a complete course on teaching kids about money, and that’s what I’m talking about today.
Financial Literary for Youth
Financial Literacy for Youth, or FLY, is the name I came up with. It may stick; it may not. The point is, we need some education for kids in the money area.
Now I’m working with a friend who runs an investment company in Mumbai, India, as well as several friends in Europe to start this course in English, and ultimately to translate it into languages all over the world.
Every country seems to have an issue with teaching kids about money.
You can see more of a breakdown on the specific topics we’re going to cover below.
I’m excited to launch this course, but I know it’s going to take a lot of work and effort from a lot of people.
How Can You Help?
I’m not asking for money or anything like that, but I could use your help.
I re-branded the Freedom Sprout Facebook group to become more of a mastermind group to decide what all we are going to include in the course.
That’s where you come in. If you’re interested in helping mold the content that will be included in this course, please join the Facebook group here and invite all your friends. Once you answer the one membership question to confirm you’re a real person, I will approve your request.
In this group, we’ll share ideas on what questions the course needs to answer and which topics need to be included. We also share helpful and motivational content to help parents—and honestly everyone—with their finances. We talk about minimalism and travel as well, and the group isn’t spammed with 100 posts a day about useless stuff.
I hope you’ll join us!
