New Educational Program in San Diego for Teens Set for March

Money MindEd Launches After-School Program to Teach Teenagers Practical Finance Skills

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - Money MindEd, LLC is launching its new financial knowledge program for teens in San Diego this March. The Money MindEd program is an after-school classroom series that educates high-school aged students about the basics of finance through in-person instruction.

Young people will now have access to an easy-to-understand financial program, based on real-world examples and techniques. The program will focus on building financial mastery in young people as they move towards their first jobs and into college.

"Some teenagers may know a bit about managing money but most have not thought about budgeting or what they are really spending their hard-earned savings on," says Jaclyn Schell, President, Money MindEd. "They then head off to college where they're suddenly responsible for saving, budgeting, and managing their own money, and much too often students make uninformed decisions, running up debt and developing poor financial habits."

From her experience as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, Schell created the program basing much of the curriculum on a similar step-by-step process she uses with adults, parents and university students. The Teen Program is a six-week course designed for high school students to learn the fundamentals of personal finance through techniques and discussions that relate to teen interests, skills and daily routines.

Courses will be held after-school on-site at schools or organizations or off-site at Money MindEd's new education location, Brandman University. The first class begins March 2, 2011.

"Now is the right age to instill good habits and teach teens financial responsibility. In a few simple, fun classes, they will learn to avoid debt problems and save for the future," explains Schell. "Through Money MindEd, we are laying a solid foundation for financial balance in their lives while giving them a great opportunity to build their financial success."
