It's a Fiscal Fiesta!


What a time to be a teen! Between smart phones, drones, and every other have-to-have gadget, there's no shortage of fun toys and distractions for them to splurge their savings. While we can't blame them for wanting to stay up to date with the hottest trends in tech, we can teach them the importance of being financially literate and saving their hard-earned dollars for something a little more substantial. And wouldn't you know it, April is Financial Literacy Month and Texas GEAR UP is celebrating by sharing lots of great tools to help you do just that! 

Head over to the Educators' Toolbox to start checking out helpful financial literacy resources including games, videos with lesson plansfinancial literacy activities, scholarship information, and more. With so many tips and tools to help teach financial fundamentals to TXGU'ers, it's only a matter of time before they're swapping gadget shopping for saving money instead.
