April is Financial Literacy Month

April is Financial Literacy Month

Andson launches at-home lessons to provide families with the much-needed resources to teach their children about money. By way of an unprecedented partnership with BusyKid, Andson is now able to deploy access not only to our Openvest financial literacy platform but also to the BusyKid app for chores and money management for children of all ages. All Andson materials align to NV Common Core Standards.

Andson is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching financial literacy and providing after school homework help and tutoring programs for students K-12 in Southern Nevada.

In light of school closures and distance learning, we are quickly transforming the way we provide our programs under the circumstances and continue to bridge the gap for students. Our team of dedicated board members, staff and partners have developed some exciting opportunities for families to utilize at home.

For the past 10 years, Andson has been providing supplemental educational programs in Southern NV and teaching students about money in the classroom. In response to COVID-19 and the demand for our continued services, we have launched two new initiatives.

  • Free financial literacy lessons that families can use RIGHT NOW – at Openvest.org/family-access. These lessons are brief, include videos, and provide fun assignments. We will continually develop and launch additional lessons throughout the summer months.
  • Andson’s new partnership with BusyKid enables families in Clark County to access their digital app to teach kids how to save, spend, invest, and share right from their devices. Children can earn money through chores, buy REAL stocks, and even DONATE to causes in their community.
