Originally aired on E! Entertainment as sponsored programming on Thursday December 15, 2016.
(LOS ANGELES, December 12, 2016) -- Modern Living with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive story featuring American Honda Finance Corporation Senior Vice President, David Paul and Junior Achievement President/CEO, Jack Kosakowski. The interview focuses on the partnership between the two companies with a goal of teaching teens all about financial responsibility.
American Honda Finance Corporation has partnered with Junior Achievement to sponsor the development of Junior Achievement's personal finance curriculum. Their awareness campaign helps teens gain an understanding of the financial responsibilities associated with vehicle ownership.
Paul discusses the importance of developing good credit early in life. He says, "At American Honda Finance, we have an opportunity to educate our youth. We really want to make it possible for them to establish good credit early to enable them to make larger purchases, like a new car or home. "
Kosakowski echoes this sentiment, saying that vehicle ownership is a good way to get kids thinking about money management. He explains, "When we talk to young people about financial literacy and being financially capable, they have to have something in mind. The first car is something every kid looks forward to! And as they're saving money, it's something real. Plus, it gives parents who have a real challenge talking with their children about finances a tangible item that they can both relate to. That's why it's wonderful having this partnership because American Honda Finance Corporation is a greatly respected brand that gets kids' attention -- and then we can work on financial literacy."
JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Modern Living with kathy ireland®, added, “Teaching kids about the importance of financial responsibility can never begin too early. Thanks to the partnership between American Honda Finance Corporation and Junior Achievement, teens are learning all about how to save their money wisely so they can afford that car they've been thinking about! Seeing these two powerhouse companies come together is extraordinary, and we can't wait to see where this partnership goes. We're thrilled to feature these two inspiring companies on our show."
