The need is clear…..so let’s do something about it!


Parents who prepare their teens for adulthood by instilling great money habits and attitudes are extraordinary!  Your teen is learning a life skill that will allow him or her to have real self-confidence, peace of mind, security, a life full of options and opportunities, and the ability to make a real and lasting difference in the world.

You know the value of this education for your teen.  It’s such an important skill for them to learn, especially at a time when they are forming their money habits and attitudes that will last their whole lives.

Most parents face obstacles that prevent them from effectively teaching these skills to their teens, including

  • A misconception that this is a private issue that shouldn’t be talked about in polite circles
  • A misconception that children can learn this skill on their own when they are adults
  • An unclear idea of what teens CAN learn and they WANT to learn
  • A cultural norm of habit of making money matters a low-priority part of parenting
  • A lack of reliable, effective resources that parents can rely on to support their teen in developing great money habits and attitudes

These barriers cause us to raise young adults who face the real financial challenges of today’s economy without the skills, habits, or the knowledge that they need, at such a vulnerable time in their lives…when bad habits have lifelong, lasting effects.

We know from the research and from experience that it doesn’t have to be this way.  That’s why we are creating a movement—and any small or big part you bring will move it forward.

The mission of WealthQuest for Teens is to make it easy and normal to teach teens EFFECTIVE money habits and attitudes NOW in a way that lasts their whole lives.

To fulfill this mission, our goals are to

  • Supply parents with the resources they need to provide their teens the best education possible
