Phroogal kicks off Road to Financial Wellness tour June 1 to educate Millennials how to manage their money most effectively

ELIZABETH, NJ (May 29, 2015) — Phroogal, a financial education service that empowers millennials to make better informed financial decisions, is hitting the road to get people talking about their financial wellness. The Road to Financial Wellness tour will kick off in Portland, Maine on June 1,2015 and wrap up in Los Angeles on June 30. The epic 10,000 mile road trip will take the Phroogal team across the country to visit 30 cities in 30 days.

The team will make stops at 30 cities along the way, spending the day speaking with local residents and millennials about their financial stories and participating in special events such as financial education workshops, fairs, coffeehouse discussions and impromptu street level discussions. Phroogal has teamed up with credit unions, nonprofits, financial institutions and government organizations to help make navigating financial health accessible to young adults.

“We want to tie financial education to achieving lifestyle goals, which is important to millennials,” says Jason Vitug, CEO and founder of Phroogal. “Personal finance isn’t a hot topic of conversation but when you start talking about what you can achieve with the right set of information and tools, millennials are mobilized to listen and take action.”

The Road to Financial Wellness events are aimed to start local conversations about money and turn them into a national conversation about financial well-being. The events will vary from one location to another, but each will include discussion about money mindsets. Attendees will talk about their relationship with money and learn about the resources and tools that empower their communities to make better financial decisions. The events will include an hour+ session where the Phroogal team can engage, discuss and present information to the attendees.

The road trip is nationally sponsored by  “Payoff is helping people radically redefine their relationship with money,” said CEO Scott Saunders.  “We are offering everyone a Financial Personality Quiz that helps them understand how they approach and make financial decisions.  It is an incredibly empowering tool that paves the way to successfully paying off debt and becoming a saver and an investor.  We are excited to introduce this free resource to consumers at events throughout the summer.”
