In collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Lightbulb developed the new Web site for the Money Matters: Make it Count financial literacy program. The
Web site will be launched in late fall 2010, at http://www.MoneyMattersMakeitCount.com
The Web site covers the fundamentals of budgeting, saving and investing, credit, paying for college, and entrepreneurship, and offers teens engaging games, quizzes, polls, and calculators that drive home key points and highlight the relevance of financial smarts in everyday life.
In addition, It’s Your Financial Life, one of Lightbulb’s most popular publications for kids, is now available as a digital guide for reading online or mobile devices. Written specially for teens and young adults, it covers topics including banking, using credit wisely, and investing.
