Biz Kid$ is an award-winning comprehensive financial literacy program focused on teaching kids how to use credit wisely and the importance of saving, budgeting, investing and giving back to their communities. The program includes an Emmy award winning television series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, and a website for kids 9 – 16 years old. Biz Kid$ is the first national public television series promoting financial education for elementary through high school students and was created by the same team that produced “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” All of the Biz Kid$ episodes are based on national standards for financial literacy and entrepreneurship education and have been mapped to individual state standards.
                                     
“We encourage all educators and support staff in San Diego to attend this seminar and learn more about the SDCCU Biz Kid$ program, created to teach students about money and business. We are pleased to provide this valuable resource to teachers, which will lay the groundwork to begin building a successful financial future and enhance lives for years to come,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.

Research shows that the average high-school graduate lacks basic skills to manage personal finances, many young people experience difficulty balancing a checkbook and half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. For more of these statistics, view the SDCCU Biz Kid$ program infographic.
