About Us

Money Talks Program

Money Talks for Teens is a bilingual (English/Spanish) money management curriculum aimed at individuals age 14-24 years old and adults who work with them. The materials, developed by a team of University of California Cooperative Extension advisors, specialist, and staff, provide teens accurate, non-biased information and hands-on experiences in financial management and capability building.


Who We Are

Established in 1914 and funded through federal, state, and county partnerships, the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) provides non-formal educational opportunities to rural and urban youth and adults of all economic levels and ethnic backgrounds.

County-based advisors in 63 local offices are linked with research programs and expertise through Cooperative Extension Specialists who are members of the UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources on the Berkeley, Davis, and Riverside campuses.

Part of UCCE's mission has always been to develop culturally-sensitive outreach programs in family and consumer sciences, specifically targeted toward lower- and moderate-income families and toward those who are first- and second-generation Americans.

A broad spectrum of financial topics has traditionally been an essential component of UCCE programs designed to improve the economic well-being and quality of living for all Californians.

This web site was developed by the UCCE Money Talks Workgroup with outside funding from the JP Morgan Chase Foundation's Financial Literacy Program and the Money Talks Cy Pres Award Project. We wish to thank the JP Morgan Chase Foundation for their generosity and their concern about the future of today's youth.
