How does learning about money today look different than it maybe once did? Join us on The FitMoney Podcast for conversations on building healthy financial futures for everyone, everywhere.
"To pass off our kids' financial education to a commercial entity, with no reason to support them, is setting us up for failure," said Taylor Burton, the Founder of Till Financial, on this weeks' episode of The FitMoney Podcast.
Where we once may have gone into a bank, received a checkbook, and learned how to manage money from there, with the rise of mobile banking, teaching about money has become more difficult when there's no direct visual or physical experience.
On today’s episode, FitMoney Executive Director Jessica Pelletier sits down with founder of Till Taylor Burton, to discuss his mission to build smarter spenders by providing debit cards for teens. Jessica and Taylor discuss the importance of educating students young, trusting them to practice making their own decisions, and the responsibilities that ourselves and institutions have to empower them with financial literacy skills.
