Money Habitudes 2 is a quick 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.
The Small Group Set includes:
- the instructor's manual
- 5 decks of Money Habitudes II cards
- one set of pads (25 copies of 6 worksheets)
- 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 at-risk youth 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.
