Donald Faison hosts YOUR LIFE, YOUR MONEY, airing Sept. 9 on PBS

ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With America's recession deepening, young people are in the worst financial trouble in more than a generation. ... The groundbreaking new program YOUR LIFE, YOUR MONEY empowers young adults to get their financial lives on track -- even if they barely have finances at all.

YOUR LIFE, YOUR MONEY tells the stories of young people who are facing the many challenges that come with making, managing and getting the most from their money.

Hosted by Donald Faison ("Scrubs," "Clueless") and featuring insights from hip-hop icon Russell Simmons and R&B/pop singer D.Woods (Danity Kane), this engaging special provides vital, relatable information on everything from banking and credit to investments, budgeting, insurance and self-employment. With compelling real-life stories of young people finding their way through a variety of economic challenges, the program addresses an urgent demand for forthright financial advice in a pivotal stage of life.

The program also features practical advice from personal finance experts, including New York Times best-selling author Beth Kobliner (Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties); young America's renowned financial coach Peter Bielagus; syndicated financial columnist Michelle Singletary (The Washington Post), and other nationally respected financial advisors.

"I think it is important for all young adults to educate themselves on their finances," host Donald Faison says. "I am happy to be a part of something that brings attention to this subject for those just starting out."

Exactly the type of thing that needs to be taught. Good work.

YOUR LIFE, YOUR MONEY airs Wednesday, September 9, 2009, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET on PBS.
