Money Smart Youth Ambassadors


Five youth from across Michigan became financial leaders this past April by stepping up to the challenge of becoming the first inaugural Money Smart Youth Ambassadors, a program coordinated by Michigan State University Extension 4-H Youth Development Program. These youth were selected as a result of winning a 4-H Money Smart Contest and have been charged with sharing their knowledge with their peers.  

Money Smart Youth Ambassadors have gained leadership and public speaking experience by presenting during Teen Talk: Money Tips webinar, starring in a Wallet Watch podcast hosted by Michigan State University Federal Credit Union, writing articles and providing valuable input into future financial education programs. 


Read about interesting money topics to help you become consumer savvy and get a head start on growing your wealth. These articles were written by youth for youth.
