Money Habitudes 2® is a quick financial program introducing vulnerable youth to the non-technical, human side of money – a critical element of successful money management. The three active lessons explore how hidden attitudes affect the ways people – especially those with few financial resources – actually behave around money. 

Topics in the Instructor’s Manual include:

  • Why money management is important in our lives.
  • Different approaches to handling money: spontaneous, practical, carefree, security, generous, and more.
  • The symbolism of money: as a sign of power, status, love, safety, independence, loyalty and more.
  • The influence of family, media, culture, and life events.
  • The advantages and challenges of different approaches to money.
  • The interplay between money and relationships.

A key goal is helping young people identify their personal financial patterns – and why these matter. The award-winning Money Habitudes® card game, integrated into the lessons, makes the process fun and engaging.

Money Habitudes 2® is written specifically for at-risk or low resource youth in community programs, including pregnancy prevention, teen parenting, and workforce development. The scenarios are realistic, reflecting the students’ limited resources and lack of financial know-how.

Ideal for grant-funded programs, Money Habitudes 2® is practical, affordable, and easy to teach. Course materials include a teacher’s manual with 3 lessons, re-useable card decks (one per student) and reproducible work sheets.
