The Money Smart for Young Adults curriculum helps youth ages 12-20 learn the basics of handling their finances. Money Smart for Young Adults consists of eight instructor-led modules. Each module includes a fully scripted instructor guide, participant guide, and PowerPoint slides.

In addition to the instructor-led modules, we offer optional computer-based scenarios that allow students to complete realistic exercises for each module. The scenarios are divided by module and could be completed as a pre- or post-test, knowledge checks, homework exercise, group activity, or supplemental activity.

Each of the scenarios takes the students through the financial decisions that face the young adult characters. As students complete each scenario, they are evaluating current knowledge or gained knowledge learned through the instructional materials and classroom activities. There are no right or wrong answers; students choose the best answer and then see how that decision has affected the characters' financial status. Each scenario takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

The scenarios can be found within a single .zip file. To use these scenarios:
1. We suggest you create a new folder on your computer for the scenario files.
2. Download the ZIP file (Interactive Scenarios.ZIP) to your computer.
3. Use a ZIP file utility to extract this file to the new folder you created (or other desired location).
4. Once you have extracted the files, double-click on the file named menu.htm.
