Youth Financial Education News and Analysis: Looking for the Latest, Greatest Curated Content?

Curated Youth Financial Literacy and Education ContentAre you interested in youth financial literacy and education? Do you want to keep abreast of the latest news, techniques, trends, and analysis when it comes to teaching kids good personal finance habits?

Me too.

In fact...

Tagged Financial Education Content Library

I spend hours each day scanning articles, blog posts, social media streams, videos, and everything else on the Internet in search of the most interesting youth financial education content. Ditching the gratuitous link bait and just plain shallow, hackneyed pieces, I systematically cull out the high quality items and catalog them on the bookmarking site Delicious.com.

Over the last two and a half years, I have saved and tagged thousands of links. 2,845 as of now, to be precise.

Want to see quality articles on how the Girl Scouts are enhancing their program with financial merit badges? Just click on the girl-scouts tag.

Is paying kids for grades effective, ineffective, or just plain wrong? Click on the grades tag to get quality opinion, research, and analysis.

Wondering how much parents are doling out for their kids’ teeth? Click on the tooth-fairy tag.

Poke around a bit — there are almost a hundred different tags.

If you just want to cut to my favorites, check out the family finance picks posted on the blog each week.

Real-time Financial Education Link Curation

But what if you’d like to hear about new content as soon as I discover it? Maybe you’d even like to see my (I’d like to think thoughtful) commentary along with each link. Want to lob in your own two cents, share with your audience, or see what others have to say?

Then you’ll want to join our Facebook page where I post and comment on the curated youth financial education links in real-time throughout the day.

Here’s a preview of the latest:

And if you stumble upon a quality youth financial literacy and education link that I’ve missed, I’d be very grateful if you stop by and post it on our wall.

See how East Los Angeles is creating a college-going culture through asset building and financial literacy - and along the way we are creating wise consumers and future informed investors...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC2HrPnJppE&feature=g-user-u

Jesse, thank you for stopping by and leaving the pointer to your video on the correlation between a child having a savings account in their name and going to college (7 times more likely than if don't).

I'm a big fan of savings accounts for kids, but I think they are a limited tool for teaching day-to-day personal finance to young kids. They're a good thing, but they're very long term, out-of-site out-of-mind.

I think a nice complement for teaching financial literacy in a more hands-on, day-to-day way is the online virtual bank approach where kids work in regular collaboration with their parents. The software keeps it simple for the parents to be good, consistent money mentors and makes it engaging and hands-on for the kids. An excellent warm-up for real online banking where mistakes can be extremely costly.
