Parents know the importance of keeping kids physically fit, but what about making them financially fit, would you even know where to start?

That’s the mission of the Fort Lauderdale-based Kidz Count Inc.

The nonprofit promotes youth financial literacy and has already impacted the lives of more than a thousand young people across South Florida.

We focus on how Kidz Count does, and talk to a teen who is a Kidz Count success story.
