How can we take the taboo out of talking about money? Join us on The FitMoney Podcast for conversations on building healthy financial futures for everyone, everywhere.
How are schools preparing students for the world beyond them?
"Career Readiness" is the skillset students take with them as they transition from academic to professional careers. Alongside the many life changes that occur, their relationship with money can become a lot more complicated. Some may have seen a paycheck before while others may have never even considered making a budget.
On this episode, FitMoney Executive Director Jessica Pelletier meets with John Ganss, a business teacher at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich, MA, to discuss the vocational school model, and how they’re working towards financial education for their students. Today, we’re answering questions around how we can prepare students for employability, how we can practice healthy money skills for after graduation, and the different ways students learn today, along with some misconceptions around them.
