Effective money management, wealth creation through investment, and the informed use of credit are all critical skills for leveling the financial playing field and promoting economic mobility.

Grow. and Junior Achievement are partnering to bring students from across the United States together to give them the opportunity to ask a panel of experts questions about the role education plays in leveling the financial playing field.
