The Financial Act launched the Big Thinker Project in 2019. We believe parents, students, and community leaders should be involved in education reform that expends and deepens opportunities for families and fill gaps in resources for students and educators. We believe this is possible throughout our focus areas.
What will students learn in the Big Thinker Project?
- How to manage their money, how to balance a checkbook, and types of financial accounts.
- How to budget their income, so their spending and saving choices reflect it
- How to make confident and informed decisions about college and career decisions
- Recognize the value of money and the difference between credit cards and cash flow
- Make their budget healthier by increasing their income or reducing their debt and expenses, or both
- How to set financial and life goals, motivating the student to engage in their own financial situation
- Learn practical ways to save and invest and the principles of each
- See how God designed out time and money to bring us a satisfaction beyond anything we can imagine
- Recognize the position of financial forces such as taxes, credit, and insurance
Students will learn the essentials of using credit, interest rates, money management, and stewardship, including how to create and use a budget to make better decisions. They will gain a clear understanding of the worldly and eternal value of their education, time, and career. We will educate on the dangers of using credit the wrong way, the fundamentals of saving and investing, and how to manage the dangers and distractions this world will throw at their financial plans in life.
Students will leave the course with a clear understanding of how to manage their resources from an eternal perspective.
This is an excellent course for:
- High school students who want to learn personal fiancé from an eternal perspective
- Parents, of high school students, who need to fulfill a personal finance goal of raising financially knowledgeable kids and break the generational course of poverty or poor credit
- College students who want to learn personal finance, debt management, and credit education to manage student loan and school expenses better
Providing educational opportunities for our future leaders
