The app encourages the understanding of earning money, and the value of saving for an item that is truly worth the effort to help us put our children on the path to financial literacy BEFORE they get their first job or credit card! This app goes beyond other chore apps. Kids as young as three can use the icon driven interface to earn money for tasks set by parents, go shopping and determine if wanted items are really worth the effort.
Parents can even set tasks that do not provide monetary rewards, but are still required for the day. It can be a great behavioral tool as well, if you want to track bedtime routines, potty training or even finishing homework! And in-store, the app turns the shopping experience into a situation where a child can determine for themselves if an item is really worth the effort, telling themselves yes, or no, so a parent no longer has to.
To sign up for our new upcoming app for ages 16-63, send us a request using the form to the right.
The grown up version of the app will help you stay out of debt by helping you:
- manage your time and money
- manage your wants vs. needs
- and provide access to places to earn more in ways you really enjoy, for the things the really want
Our mission is to teach kids financial discipline long before going off to college or getting their first job. The Quest to Clean Up app, available for iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices, helps parents teach the value of earning and saving, as well as how to make purchasing decisions about desired items in store while shopping, based on their willingness to work for it. We also offer pilot programs for teachers to use in the classroom as a behavioral rewards system for K-2, or as part of an economic study for 3-6.
The platform helps teach real-world experiences like skills assessment, filling out job applications, earning wages, and making spending and saving decisions based on needs and wants. Please contact us if you'd like more information about how to get the curriculum for free, which is flexible enough to mold into various economic studies, or just daily behavioral reinforcement programs.
