Captain Cash

Captain Cash 

Captain Cash is an interactive educational program designed to teach basic financial management skills to your students. This dynamic curriculum was designed to address the following issues:

  1. Money behaviors observed and learned in childhood impact adult behaviors
  2. Money management messages that children process in the home, the community, on television, and via other media that shapes their values, attitudes and future money habits
  3. Individuals and familites are not able to respond to economic disruptions because they have not learned critical money management concepts and skills.

As a part of the role, the Howard County Purdue Extension educator has been trained to teach this curriculum to students and would like to work with you to schedule this program for your school!
