Youth Financial Literacy Bill Advances

Financial Education: Equipping Mass. Youth for the Future
 
Money doesn't come with a manual. As we grow older, the financial decisions we face only get more complex yet access to quality financial education isn't always available. To make this a reality for youth, MassSaves has been actively supporting passage of an Act Relative to Financial Literacy in SchoolsThe bill would invest and equip our next generation, providing them with the knowledge and tools to build financially responsible lives. Passage is within reach - the bill was recently passed by the Senate and is currently in House Committee of Ways and Means. We thank Senator Jamie Eldridge for his leadership and commitment to students across the state. We need your support to make this a reality and bolster support to be released out of committee for a House vote. 
 
MassSaves believes personal finance content can be taught in many K-12 disciplines and that financial literacy should be approached as an interdisciplinary subject. We applaud the recent actions of MADESE in embedding personal finance standards into the draft History and Social Science Curriculum Frameworks as a first step in many such actions of infusing personal finance content across the curriculum frameworks and integrating financial literacy into existing course materials throughout the K-12 curriculum.
 
Make Your Voice Heard By: 
  1. Calling or Emailing your State Representative for their support in pushing the bill out of House Committee of Ways and Means to the House floor for a vote 
  2. Joining the MassSaves Advocacy Committee
  3. Building Support in Your Community! Write a letter to the editor of your local paper. Amplify our efforts on social media by "sharing" and "retweeting" our posts.
