Young Americans has a new initiative – aimed at “Not-So-Young” Americans — parents!

We recognize that parents are a crucial part of the community that teaches youth to be financially responsible.  That’s why we’ve recently started to offer a series of parent classes throughout Denver.

In partnership with Great-West Great Teachers, a program of Great-West Life, Young Americans is encouraging parents to start the money conversation early – and keep it going.

Because April is Financial Literacy Month, we’re offering a class focused on getting parents up to speed.  At the same time, our trained staff will be working with the youth to have them focus on money.

Join us Tuesday, April 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Young Americans in Denver.  We will offer dinner and plenty of hands-on activities at this “Financial Literacy Month Party”.  RSVP for this class here.

For parents…

Parents will get some time to ask questions and chat with each other about:

  • Allowance rates
  • Best practices for saving
  • What kids should pay for by themselves
  • How to discuss family finances with youngsters
  • Many more questions the audience will have

There will be guest speakers, banking experts, take-home resources and lots more.

For youth…

In the meantime, our staff will offer activities for your kids, ages 3 to 16, that are age-appropriate and focus on their personal money journey.

Watch this short video to learn a bit more about our unique parent classes.

Be sure to RSVP here.
