About Pennsylvania Treasury
About the PA Treasury

Basic financial education is critically important for children, but it is unfortunately largely absent from many schools. Studies have shown as few as 10 hours of personal financial education positively impacts a student’s spending and savings habits. Additionally, students who were required to take a personal finance education course in high school achieved roughly one year’s worth of additional net worth when compared with those who were not required to take such a course.

The following links provide interesting games and tools that can help to teach children the value of money and basic financial concepts like saving, interest and investing in a fun and safe way.
