We help you get smart about money.
At Money Savvy Generation, we are focused on the goal of helping kids get smart about money so they can not only survive but, more importantly, so that they thrive. We have taken the time and made the effort in the development phase of our products to optimize them. Optimization is not just about making sure something "works" right, but also making sure our products touch kids emotionally and change their behavior.
We teach money management basics to very young children - starting as young as age four. We find our audience in Pre-K and elementary school aged children, a segment of our educational system virtually without financial education because of the perceived complexity of the subject matter. Our goal is to get out in front of money management behavior before bad habits set in.
