Students Learn Budgeting and Fiscal Discipline Using Innovative Online Tool
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, RB Associates launched StayingAhead.org, a new online budgeting tool developed by students for students.
California's Schools will be the first in the nation to use the StayingAhead.org site to teach real-world budgeting. "This is an invaluable tool for California's students that teaches life skills through budgeting and fiscal responsibility. Every student should use this," California Congresswoman Jackie Speier said.
"Through StayingAhead.org, we provide California's students a simple and effective tool for life planning. Given our recent economic downturn, the site could not come at a better time for our graduating classes."
StayingAhead.org enables visitors to the site to foresee future budgeting challenges through an accurate, simple website. Students input expected life costs including entertainment, cell phone, utility and rent, and are provided real-life expected income requirements, tax payments and social security payments.
"We are honored to give this tool, free of charge, to California's students," said Robert Batinovich, founder of the tool. "We strive to empower students to be proactive in learning real life skills that will benefit them for years to come."
StayingAhead.org is designed to serve students of all ages, and anyone looking for a fast, effective budgeting tool.
The tool is available to California Schools beginning September 9th, 2011.
