Money Matters – Unlocking Your Payday Potential

As teens enter the workforce, it is essential to equip them with the financial knowledge to not only understand their paychecks but also manage their own finances. Learning money management early enables young adults to achieve financial independence and long-term financial goals more quickly.

Anyone can volunteer to teach the basics of paychecks using our easy-to-follow Money Matters curriculum and resources. Whether you choose to volunteer online or in a classroom, the presentation is designed to be effective in both virtual and in-person settings.

Topics include:

  • How to fill out the Form W-4
  • Understanding why and how payroll taxes are withheld from paychecks
  • How paychecks are calculated
  • The pros and cons of various payment methods available
