    • A few words about themint.org

      http://www.themint.org/


      The Northwestern Mutual Foundation, the charitable arm of Northwestern Mutual, partnered with the National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) in the development of themint.org.

      NCEE logoLaunched in 1997, the site provides tools to help parents as well as educators teach children to manage money wisely and develop good financial habits: the building blocks for a secure future. Given the current rate of savings and debt in America, this is a lesson that desperately needs to be learned.

      Sections on this site have been designed for families. Most pages are written in a kid-friendly style so families can work together – or older children can work independently in learning money lessons.

      We invite you and your family to explore this site. It will give you a fun and interactive way to learn about all the things people do with money: earning, saving, spending, investing, donating safeguarding, and borrowing.


      Never has the need for financial education been so critical for all students. The global financial crisis of 2008 will certainly repeat itself if the cycle of financial illiteracy is not broken. The Student Book is a quick, easy read that provides a vital dose of real world wisdom through powerful stories about teens and young adults who have faced financial hardships – some incredibly tragic. Financial Literacy for Teens will convince students to develop good financial habits at an early age - habits that will enable them to successfully make, manage, multiply, and protect their hard-earned money.
