You can start making smart financial decisions even now in high school in the areas of planning, giving, saving, spending, and investing. This amazing course will introduce you to basic financial habits such as setting financial goals, budgeting, understanding how taxes work, learning how credit works, making those big purchases like a car or home, and basic money management. This course also addresses how occupations and educational choices can influence financial planning and your future aspirations.
