Financial Education of America, LLC announces release of Futurebuck course to increase financial literacy in young adults
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL¾ Financial Education of America, LLC announces the release of Futurebuck, an online education course designed to teach young adults about financial, credit and debt management. Through a series of ten short, interactive video modules, the program covers essential financial topics such as credit cards, student loans and budget and money management. In light of the 2008 financial crisis, increasing problems with social security and impending $1 trillion student loan bubble, financial literacy is critical for any young adult.
Through a series of ten video modules, Futurebuck teaches the essentials of financial, credit and debt management in less than three hours. Topics covered include: credit cards; debt; student loans; budget/money management; credit reports; mortgages; insurance; taxes; identity theft; and investment/retirement. The course modules are broken down into 4-7 minute video segments so students can stop and continue the course at any time. The program also includes quizzes at the end of each module to reinforce the course’s lessons.
“Financial literacy has always been important, but in today’s challenging financial environment, young adults need to learn life’s financial skills sooner rather than later,” said Bob Reotutar, President of Financial Education of America, LLC, creator of Futurebuck. “Young adults often go to their parents to learn about finances, but parents are often too busy. Also, many schools do not offer courses in this area. Our program is ideal for students because we teach the important lessons of financial, credit and debt management and provide young adults with the necessary financial skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.”
Futurebuck was released August 19 and has reached over 30 states and four countries. High school and college students, young adults starting their careers and businesses are using the course to teach financial literacy. Futurebuck was featured in Millionaire.com, the Ed Tyll Radio Show, and Money Matters Radio Show. The course also was reviewed by Military.com and YoungAdultMoney.com.
