Capital One and YOUNG MONEY Launch Program to Increase Financial Awareness Among College Age Cardmembers
MCLEAN, Va., June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Recognizing that most college age students lack sufficient financial knowledge, Capital One and YOUNG MONEY have joined forces to improve students' financial decision making skills. In this first-time venture, Capital One and the leading quarterly money and lifestyle magazine for young adults will provide a free one-year subscription to a select number of college age Capital One cardholders.
"Handling finances and being on your own can be a daunting experience for young adults," said Diana Don, Director of Financial Education at Capital One. "This partnership demonstrates our commitment to promoting responsible spending habits among young people."
Because YOUNG MONEY's articles are written by college students for college students, the magazine's content addresses the financial concerns specific to this age group. YOUNG MONEY covers a variety of money related matters including: saving/investing, credit cards, career choices and consumer scams.
"We are proud to be a partner with Capital One in this endeavor," said Todd Romer, Director of Business Development for YOUNG MONEY. "We are confident that the information provided in our publication can help young people make smarter financial decisions."
