Junior Achievement’s annual Teens and Personal Finance Survey provides a snapshot of teens’ behaviors and attitudes around money management.
The key findings of Junior Achievement’s 2013 Teens and Personal Finance Survey illustrate a teen population that is more optimistic now than in past years about its financial future, yet faces challenges related to effectively managing its money.
25% of teens say they’ll be age 25-27 before they can support themselves.
23% of teens are somewhat or extremely unsure about their ability to budget successfully.
Currently, only 9% of teens say they are saving for college.
This financial uncertainty makes Junior Achievement programs in schools all the more crucial. To volunteer in a classroom near you, visit jajax.com to download a volunteer form or call (904) 398-9944.
