Starting financial training early is becoming a must in today’s disrupted world. School children are missing out on this training, unless they take a business skills class at school, or have progressive parents that teach them these skills at home.

Advance Youth Now puts these ideas into an entrepreneurship context, and offers learnings about wealth and fiscal responsibility from a business perspective. The sooner teenagers understand how money works, the sooner they can start being in control of their finances.
