Become a Rise High Rookie and help educate children about financial literacy

Are you a school or educational institution? If so, you can be part of the program.

At Rise High Financial Solutions, we believe that financial literacy is an essential life skill and that children need to learn how to manage money from an early age. Through our voluntary commitment to increase financial literacy of young Australians we aim to provide practical learning through interactive and engaging sessions focusing on teaching children and teenagers essential life and money lessons.

We make decisions every day that involve money or have financial consequences, yet research has shown that many Australians lack essential knowledge and skills in this area.

Through the Rise High Rookies program, we aim to provide students with the financial knowledge they need to make wise decisions from the outset rather than learning by trial and error later when mistakes could leave a lasting mark on their credit rating or their lives.

Positive financial decision making can feed back into the emotional and mental wellbeing of a person, and with the increased number of choices available to each of us today, it is more important than ever that young people can evaluate their options and make the best financial decisions available to them.

About the Program
Learning the basics about money can position young people to make smart decisions, helping them to begin practicing good financial habits that will last a lifetime. In an ever-changing and complex world, it is important for individuals to be financially literate. That is, the ability to understand the value of money, how to make and manage it, and how to create more wealth. This program is tailored to deliver this important information in a fun and interactive way and offers 3 levels of complexity:

• Level 1 - Years 5-7 - How we make money - The importance of saving and setting saving goals - How we determine good value - The difference between needs and wants.
• Level 2 - Years 8-9 Will also cover the basics above, plus: - Borrowing money and credit - Mobile Phones - Part-time jobs, including how tax and super would affect them.
• Level 3 – Years 10-11 Will give a brief overview of the above, plus: - Credit Ratings and how this could affect their ability to borrow money - Investing Money – Shares and Property.

The timeframes for presentations are 45 minutes for levels 1 & 2 and 1 hour for level 3. These times are indicative only and can be customised to suit your schools timetabling upon request. These presentations are designed to give an overview of important financial knowledge, however a follow up, in-depth presentation on a single area of student interest can also be arranged.
