We like to think that it’s never too early to learn about money and become financially literate. Of course, it can be a challenge to get a preschooler to sit down and learn the finer points of diversification and compound interest, though!
With that said, a common question that we run into is this: What ages is the Money Vehicle financial literacy course designed for?
The Answer: School-age students — generally, those in eighth grade up through high school seniors. But younger students can also take and learn a lot from the course, too, as can full-fledged adults. In fact, Money Vehicle is also taught to college students all across the country as well.
Truthfully, it’s never too early or too late to learn about money and become financially literate. You could be in your forties and Money Vehicle will help you build a financial plan and develop some goals to work toward. Likewise, you could be an elementary school student with a lemonade stand — Money Vehicle has some lessons to teach you, too!
Here’s our prediction: By 2027, all 3.5 million graduating high school seniors in the United States will be required to have taken and passed a financial literacy or personal finance course. If you haven’t been paying attention, the number of states that are already incorporating such requirements is growing every year.
With that, it is our mission to provide the most entertaining, engaging, and empowering personal finance program for students all across the country, regardless of age. Plus, the Money Vehicle course can be directed by an in-classroom teacher, or as a self-paced, standalone project that students can tackle.
Again, we’ve meticulously designed the Money Vehicle course to be accessible to students from a broad spectrum of ages and backgrounds. But the target student is a high-schooler, and specifically, one that will need to take a financial literacy course before entering college or the workforce after graduation.
