Youth financial literacy is a parental concern

If you are concerned about your children’s ability to help manage your financial future, or eventual handling of your estate, or even select the right nursing home for you, it might be a great idea to encourage them to attend a free forum Friday evening at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center in Nevada City.

The event, set from 7:30 to 9 p.m. and hosted by longtime local business Ostrofe Financial Consultants, will feature Vince Shorb, president of the National Youth Financial Educators Council, and Fritz Meyer, a leading economic and markets analyst and frequent guest on CNBC, Bloomberg TV and FOX Business News.

The guest speakers will attend high school assemblies earlier in the day, where they hope to encourage students to start managing their money more effectively.

“Many of us grew up with parents who were taught that they shouldn’t talk about money with their children,” said Allen Ostrofe. “And when they made financial mistakes, they hid them from the children.”

Shorb and Meyer will share tips on how families at any income level can improve their financial lives while decreasing financial stress.

“Everyone will come away with something they can put to work now,” said Ostrofe. “And they will feel more empowered and confident to address the financial issues of tomorrow, for parents and children.”

There is no charge for the event.
