Financial literacy education is one of the 14 program elements for the WIOA youth program. Financial literacy education refers to activities that provide youth with the knowledge and skills that they need to achieve long-term financial stability.
Financial literacy education encompasses information and activities on a range of topics, such as creating budgets; setting up checking and saving accounts; managing spending, credit, and debt; understanding credit reports and credit scores; and protecting against identify theft.
