Many people begin the New Year with plans to exercise more and watch what they eat. However, financial health is as important as physical health, particularly for young people. Teaching young people basic money management skills will help them not only this year, but for years to come. That’s why Iowa State University Extension and Outreach helps make the High School Financial Planning Program available in Iowa.
