TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis today released the Finance Your Future app, a financial literacy app for middle and high school students. Finance Your Future is a free, interactive online course designed to educate Florida’s students on core money management skills. The free app is available for download now on both the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store.
 
“The financial lessons and skills we teach our young people develop the foundation that will help determine their success,” said CFO Jimmy Patronis. “The Finance Your Future app is a remarkable tool to educate our children and give them a strong foundation to create a better financial future for themselves and their family.”
 
The Finance Your Future app includes the same features and accessibility as the program’s original website, FinanceYourFuture.MyFloridaCFO.com.

The app allows users to create an account and save their progress and enables instructors to create and assign customized lessons for their students. While designed with Florida’s students in mind, Finance Your Future is a useful app for all ages.
