"According to National Safe Place, homeless youths are at an increased risk of harm than other children their age. They are more likely to experience mental illness, suffer poor health, drop out of school, and become involved with or become criminal activity victims."
To offset these disparities, Money Talks Edu established a community conglomerate comprising Life Outside The Streets, Ebony Suns, and More Than A Sport, Inc. We aligned forces to create a more efficient combat approach to teen violence and poverty in underserved communities and schools. We're doing everything in our power to provide personal finance advisors, physical and mental wellness coaches, and social entrepreneurial mentors to homeless youths.
Teens are too young to have bad credit , yet if you don't teach them how to manage their finances when they are young. They will grow up embarrassed and in economic distress, questioning why no one taught them the vital money management skillsets needed to manage their lives.
