EverFi surveyed over 20,000 high school students about saving, credit, and other money topics. They found that only 52% know what a credit score is, 49% talk to their parents about finances, and 54% keep track of what they spend.

Do you have a teen in your life? If so, National Financial Literacy Month is a great opportunity to encourage healthy financial habits and financial education. Of course, we encourage these things all year long!

You can see the results of the survey here, or by clicking on the image above.

Did any of the information surprise you? Encourage you? How would you go about promoting personal finance among today’s youth?
