I am thankful that people say “SPARKS FLY” what a cute name! That’s when I usually explain that the “FLY” part is an acronym for “financial literacy for YOU(th)”and they say how clever!  I am grateful for that, but they really love it when they watch this for themselves.

The point of learning about money is not for the sake of money.  There are many things in life that are more important than money.  Family, friends, time spent doing what you love to do!

But the people who can’t manage money will never have time for the things that are more important.

We’ve heard the cliché that no one on their deathbed ever says “I really wish I had just one more hour in the office…”

That’s why financial education gives people a better chance of having a better life.

We are particularly excited to connect with the YOUNG DEMS of Brooklyn!  We’ve been invited to present the special topic at the November meeting, which is … drum roll please… “Who Says Millennials Are Not Financially Fit?” We’ll be at THE STANDARD (82 4th Avenue, Bkln, 11217).

Who says Millenials are not well off financially?  According to the Dallas Morning News:

10%

Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 are nearly 10 percent less likely to have a job now than they were a decade ago, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

18.1%

According to the Economic Policy Institute, when you add people 25 and under who are “idling” (not searching for jobs or going to school) to the 2014 youth unemployment rate, it increases from 14.5 percent to 18.1 percent.

$1T

Americans collectively owe over $1 trillion in student loans. They owed only $461 billion eight years ago, according to the recent study published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

We’re looking forward to discussing discussing student debt, savings and long term goals with these up and community leaders.  We are honored to have this opportunity to interact with this demographic for their betterment and ours.

Getting good solution based information is mission critical!

Learn more so you can live more.  Get  money smart kids… feel financially fabulous!

That when SPARKS FLY.

    The material presented by Sparks Fly at the UFT Parent Conference was the perfect fit for STEM inclusion in our Afterschool program and the parent engagement piece. We’ll see SPARKS FLY at the next PTA meeting. Thank you.
