CHICAGO - The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago will host a panel discussion at 8am on Wednesday, April 2, on the unique financial challenges facing young adults and the technologies they’re using to address them.


The panelists, who are themselves millennials, have been featured on outlets such as MTV, the Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America and the New York Times to discuss their expertise in personal financial education.


Panelists are:

  • Martin Dasko, Blogger, Studenomics
  • Joe Duran, Chief Operating Officer, Moneythink

  • Andrew Schrage, Co-Owner, Moneycrashers.com


Panel topics will include:

  • How do millennials approach personal finance and education?
  • How are young people using technology to manage their finances?
  • How are millennials handling the economic climate post-recession?
  • How can we communicate with millennials to help them make better financial decisions?


The panel discussion will kick off Money Smart Week™, which offers more than 3,000 free financial education classes and seminars for consumers in 45 states April 5-12. 


The classes are open to people of all ages at businesses, financial institutions, libraries and community organizations throughout the country. They cover a wide variety of money-management topics including saving for college, buying a house, using credit wisely and managing student debt. Events are coordinated by more than 1,500 local partners and several national partners.


Money Smart Week is the broadest and most comprehensive financial education program in the country. Started in 2002 in Chicago with just 40 programs, it has expanded significantly to become the only national program focused on a wide range of personal finance topics for all stages of life.
