What is financial literacy?  

Financially literate consumers not only manage money with more confidence, but also have a better chance of handling the inevitable ups and downs of their financial lives by understanding how to prevent and manage issues as they arise.


That can mean keeping a close eye on their bank and credit card accounts so they're aware of potential fraud as soon as possible, or being able to recover from a costly unexpected car repair quickly thanks to ample cash savings. On the other hand, financial literacy can help consumers save diligently for things that matter to them, such as a vacation or their child's college education. 


Here are some ways how being financially literate can change your life: 

  • Understanding of how much you earn and spend.  

  • Financial stability — Repay and avoid debt. 

  • Protect yourself from debt and bankruptcy.  

  • Work towards a secure retirement.


Students will be tasked to create a game with an engaging storyline and activities to teach students fundamental financial literacy concepts on spending wisely.

  • Budgeting

  • Differentiating needs from wants

  • Comparison shopping

  • Avoiding impulse purchases

  • Saving for the future
