The Money Jar - The Podcast about Kids, Families and Money

About


Welcome to The Money JAR, a podcast about Kids, Families and Money, brought to you by Junior Achievement. Along with a cadre of guest experts, show hosts Evan Wilson and Todd Yuzuriha pair their unique perspectives with a mild dose of humor as they attempt to demystify the common challenges all families face while trying to educate their children on the economics of life. From money apps for kids to teaching young people how to find their dream job, our show is designed to be a practical catalyst for meaningful dialog, helping families to begin conversations around the subjects of financial literacy, entrepreneurship and being ready for the workforce ahead.
