Youth and young adults face complex challenges that often prevent them from achieving financial success. Student loans, credit scores and credit card debt are just a few examples of financial areas that youth need to be more knowledgeable about.
In response to these rising issues for our youth, University of Idaho Extension and Northwest Farm Credit Services have partnered to expand quality youth financial literacy programming throughout Idaho and the Northwest.
Northwest Youth Financial Education programs are different from many traditional financial education programs because of the level of participant engagement and opportunities for energetic and dynamic learning.
