Recently, Junior Achievement and CNBC teamed up to present a Virtual Town Hall to answer teens’ questions about the financial impact of COVID-19. Hosted by CNBC Senior Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson, this unique interactive event provided across America direct access to some of the country’s most knowledgeable economists, entrepreneurs, psychologists and counselors and ask them top-of-mind questions about how to best adapt to the new normal. The panelists will offer simple, straightforward strategies to help empower participants to strive toward a bright and successful tomorrow – because tomorrows are more important than ever.
This video features teens from across America asking a panel of experts, including former FDIC Chair Shelia Bair and Shark Tank’s Daymond John, about steps being taken to deal with the economic downturn resulting from the pandemic and what that might mean for the future.
The Virtual Town Hall lasts about an hour. Please feel free to share this video with any teens, teachers, parents, or others who you think might find it helpful!
