Money and Millennials: Credit for Beginners
Blog from JA USA

 By Hannah Henry

Credit is like a car, it has to be built before you can get to where you want to go.

Unfortunately, the negative connotation of a credit card prevented me from my forward movement of building credit until I was in my mid-20s.

As a child, I never noticed a budget in our household. There were no coupons trapped under a magnet on the fridge nor did a budget-conversation occur at the kitchen table when it was time for my brother and me to get back-to-school supplies. It may come as a surprise, but many families don't discuss money with their young children. In fact, a Junior Achievement (JA) survey reported that 84 percent...

Being given a purpose in this world is what we are all searching for. Luckily for Malachi Kern, destiny came in the form of a JA volunteer teaching in his third-grade classroom when he was a child in Chicago. The volunteer told Kern during his time teaching the class, "You were born to change the world". This quote resonated with Kern, especially since, at the time, he was struggling to find his...
