YMCA Sets Kids Up for Success with Early Age Financial Education Program

The Weingart East Los Angeles YMCA (WELA Y) is focused on setting kids up for success at an early age. This summer the WELA Y has incorporated Sammy Rabbit’s Dream Big financial education and goal setting program into its schedules for 5 to 12 years olds. As the videos below demonstrate, the kids are learning and liking the lessons. What many parents may not realize are two things:

1. More and more research indicates adult money habits are formed early, perhaps as early as age seven.
2. Schools offer little, if any instruction on money.
