Financial Education For Youth & Teens

Introducing Coindexter Jr. for ages 3 and up!

Children begin developing financial behaviors as early as age three, and by age seven, most financial behaviors are firmly in place. It’s extremely important that children learn the correct way to manage money during these formative years. Children should begin learning about money as soon as they are able to count.

Candy and the Coinbot iOS App

The Candy and the Coinbot is the first adventure in the Coindexter Junior series and provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of money management: earning your own money, spending money wisely, saving towards a goal, and giving to help others. This free app tells the story in an engaging, digital format that is fully narrated and interactive.

Bonus! The app includes a special ‘Build the Coinbot’ puzzle!

Download the digital storybook for free from the Apple App Store.
