According to research conducted for Junior Achievement (JA), nearly one-in-four teens expects a car or help paying for a car when they graduate high school. While 76 percent of teenagers are confident that they understand the financial responsibilities of owning a car, 85 percent of parents disagree. Junior Achievement has developed a comprehensive financial literacy program called The JA Personal Finance Program which is aimed at helping teens understand budgeting, saving and investing money as well as how to use credit properly.
President of Junior Achievement of Central Florida Kathy Panter talked about how JA is helping teenagers understand financial responsibility on SUNNY Across Central Florida.
