About

Welcome students! Class is in session. So what is Young Finance 101? YF101 was created to teach young people (and others) about the financial world. You can never be too young or too old to learn about finance. Here you get to choose the topics you want to learn more about. Here you will learn how to, among other things, avoid student loan mistakes, how to pay down debt, how to be a frugal spender, how to create a budget, what happens when you marry with a lot of debt, how to check your credit report and much more. Each lesson is concise. The financial arena can be overwhelming at times and this site is structured to educate you quickly about the most important topics relevant to young people, with more added weekly. Much of what you will learn is not taught in conventional classrooms. It’s not a matter of how much money you have.  It’s a matter of how much money you retain and how to best utilize your resources. Young people who learn how to budget and be responsible with money often lead, for the most part, a much less stressful life. So browse and take notes. Ask questions. We are here to help you.
And if we have helped you, if we have given you useful information—please tell your friends about this site.
