Junior Achievement unveils Build Your Future

Posted 10/1/13

PROVIDENCE – Teens have a new way to learn smart money habits and prepare to finance their education with JA Build Your Future, an app designed to assist with financial planning, according a Sept. 26 announcement from Junior Achievement and PwC.

The app is available for downloading on mobile phones and tablets for both iOS and Android operating systems.

The goal of the app is to assist young people in learning to set financial goals as they plan for college and a career.

“Average student loan debt is about $26,000 and not all careers generate enough income to pay that off in a timely manner. ‘JA Build Your Future’ is a tool that teens, their parents and their teachers can use to make more informed choices about much money to borrow and to explore educational options,” said President of Junior Achievement of Rhode Island Lee Lewis.

The app explores more than 100 careers and reviews the education required, potential income and costs of in-state and out-of-state colleges.
