A Day At Junior Achievement Finance Park

    | April 25, 2023


    April is Financial Literacy Month, the perfect time to teach the next generation how to save, budget, and build a solid financial foundation for the future. Telemus recently volunteered with Junior Achievement in Detroit and Chicago, helping students learn how to make real-life financial decisions based on a budget they were given. The team helped guide financial conversations and decision-making, teaching important financial lessons along the way.

    "I think what surprised [the students] is how much certain things cost. I don't think they really realized," said Josh Levine, Telemus Partner and Senior Financial Life Advisor. "The most important financial lesson I hope the kids learned was living within your means."

    According to a recent study by the National Financial Educators Council, a lack of financial literacy training cost Americans an average of $1,819 in 2022 - and 15% of Americans said it cost them $10,000 or more. Working with young people to teach financial literacy and life skills is rewarding and helps enrich our community.
