Dean Somerville: Empowering Teens with Financial Wisdom

This week's Employer Partnership Nomination goes to Young Adult Money Advice, nominated by Round Rock ISD.

In this week's spotlight, we turn our attention to Dean Somerville, the driving force behind Young Adult Money Advice. Dean's dedication to empowering teenagers with financial literacy is truly inspiring. As the author of "Financial Freedom for your Teenager," he not only imparts invaluable knowledge but also channels the proceeds from book sales toward a noble causeā€”a $500 senior scholarship awarded annually. Dean's commitment to giving back underscores his passion for equipping young adults with the tools they need to thrive in an increasingly complex financial landscape.

Beyond his literary contributions, Dean actively engages with the local community by speaking to Finance classes in the Austin area. By sharing his expertise and insights, he not only educates students on practical financial strategies but also instills in them a sense of confidence and empowerment. Additionally, Dean's involvement as a member of Round Rock ISD's Career and Technical Education Advisory Board further demonstrates his commitment to shaping the future of education and preparing students for success in the real world.

Dean Somerville exemplifies the power of individuals to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young people. Through his advocacy, scholarship initiatives, and active engagement with educational institutions, he is paving the way for a generation of financially savvy individuals poised to achieve their goals and dreams. As we celebrate Dean's contributions this week, let us be inspired to continue fostering a culture of financial empowerment and education for all.
