Dr. Richard G. Morrison, Ph.D., a member of Wrightsville UMC in Wilmington, recently wrote a book (a teaching guide actually) for young adults, defined by him as young people aged 15 to 25.
Studies show that more than 30% of young people have not been inside a bank, have little understanding of the “value” of money, and some do not even know what actual money feels like, because they use a “debit card” that their parents have provided them.
As a retired international pharmaceutical sector executive, and a twice retired Executive-in-Residence at the Cameron School of Business at UNCW, Richard (Dick) has been made acutely aware of the need for a book that is both easy to understand and fun to use, to help young folk become more financially literate.
Interesting is that only a few weeks ago, legislation was passed in North Carolina dictating that starting next year in public schools, high school students will not be granted permission to graduate if they are not financially literate.
Dick is working with the Superintendent of Education leadership in our state to help fulfill this future requirement.
Question: Is there a possibility that this money management guide will fit into your youth program at your church? If so, Dick would be happy to talk with you to discuss how his book might fit into your programs. You can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: Many folk who have reviewed his book titled Plant and Grow Your Money: A Financial Guide for Young Adults have said that this book can be used by individuals of ALL ages, because the simple principles of money management, including easy budgeting based on cash flow techniques, can be used by EVERYONE.
