Youth Money School

The Youth Money School (YMS) offers free financial education for teens and young adults between the ages of 14 -24.

The success of the adult CMS program led to the creation of the Youth Money School (YMS) in 2012 serving 14-24 year olds. YMS has reached over 3,000 students since 2013. CAHS has facilitated workshops at schools, community organizations, and after school programs. Each year we broaden our scope and acquire new partners around the state.

Each workshop provides well-researched and detailed information about money values, budgeting, credit (building and managing), developing healthy banking relationships, investing in yourself, homeownership, and much more.

Volunteers Needed

Your support is what drives our success! No matter where you are located in the state, you can volunteer and lead participants to be financially literate. Money is a universal language which allows us to accept people of all backgrounds and professions. Sign-up and help end cycles of poverty!
