AHFC Sponsors Junior Achievement USA®( JA) Personal Finance Program
American Honda Finance Corporation (AHFC) recently teamed up with the Junior Achievement USA® to sponsor the (JA) Personal Finance program. This program has been designed in order to help better educate teens on the importance of financial literacy. Through the program, high school students will be taught about valuable financial practices such as the proper use of credit, the need to save, budget and invest.
Through the investment from AHFC, the program will be redesigned in order to incorporate both digital technology and in-classroom JA volunteers to help engage the teens in their instruction. Over the next four years, JA estimates that the program will benefit close to half-a-million teens and help them to become more financially knowledgeable.
Additionally, this sponsorship will help to develop the awareness campaign which will focus on the financial aspects that come with owning a vehicle such as routine maintenance, financing options and paying for insurance.
“We support Junior Achievement USA because their core values align very well with our own core values as a corporation—to enrich the social, economic and educational well-being of communities and society,” said David W. Paul, senior vice president, AHFC. “Buying a car is one of the first major financial decisions most of us make. It is important that we educate the next generation to ensure that they are ready for the responsibilities of financing a car as well as establishing a firm financial foundation to help them succeed in life.”
