Our first young adult program was launched in 2008, with a course curriculum designed to educate and equip young adults with vital skills before they established families fo their own.
Since then, our education department has expanded, first to high school and then junior high school, reaching out to younger ages to actively mold healthy attitudes to money: spending money and money management. Course topics include:
- Needs, Wants & Priorities
- Spending, Loans & Credit
- Budgeting & Planning; Employment & Entrepeneurship
- Savings & Investment
- Charity & Integrity
- Money Mangement through the Lens of Jewish Law and Thought
