Money Confident Kids

Money Confident Kids® (MCK) is a free, five-step program to help middle school students understand long-term wealth building concepts and that every economic decision is associated with a time horizon.  By teaching kids’ financial education at a young age, they can make informed choices throughout their lives and plan for a more secure future.

The program focuses on three key areas: learning good financial habits early, having regular talks about money matters, and improving confidence among educators, parents, and kids.

Money Confident Kids® Financial Equity Lessons:

A cornerstone of our approach to building financial capabilities is by helping educators and parents engage kids in conversations about basic money matters.  This latest resource allows students to explore tools and strategies for generating financial stability, while analyzing obstacles that drive financial inequity, including the racial wealth gap.

Money Confident Kids® Student Workbook:
The MCK Student Workbook provides lessons, activities, games and assessments covering the five steps of the program.  Designed for grades 6-8, the student workbook follows the story of Nikki from middle school to her college graduation and beyond.  Along the way you’ll get to know Nikki and her family and share her journey as she sets important financial goals along her time horizon and works to achieve them.

Money Confident Kids® Teacher Guide:
The MCK Teaching Guide is a complementary resource to the MCK Student Workbook for use in the classroom or at home. Use this guide to help ignite a dynamic conversation about spending, saving, and setting smart financial goals.

For each of the five concepts, you’ll find a standard set of components that guide students to develop a routine as they progress through the program. The MCK Teaching Guide details each concept that includes:

  • Clear, step-by-step lesson plans with sequencing suggestions, overviews, and key learnings and vocabulary
  • Engaging reading passages that model financial concepts through a character named Nikki, who starts as a  financially naive middle school student and grows into a savvy young professional
  • Real world worksheets, activities, and games
  • Assessments and answer keys
