Never Too Young: Personal Finance for K-5 Learners
Never Too Young is an elementary school level after-school program designed to instill a real-world understanding of personal finance and economics. CCEE is partnering to train 20 staff from LA’s BEST, an afterschool enrichment program founded by former Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley. Structured in 12 units, the program can be taught to K-5 learners over the course of two to four months and teaches young students the basics of banking and credit, the cost of running a family, and the importance of cost-benefit analysis in making purchases. It is designed to be taught by after-school providers, with support from content experts.
CCEE has implemented Never Too Young in 20 elementary schools in high-impact, high-poverty areas in Los Angeles Unified School District, all located in East Los Angeles. An independent evaluator has provided a final program report to highlight the gains.
