Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation Honors Commitment to Improve Financial Knowledge of Young People with Free 'Train the Trainer' Workshops
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 6:55 AM

In keeping with its commitment to help improve the financial knowledge of young people, the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation is holding a FOCUS “Train the Trainer” workshop Sept. 19 in Austin. Utilizing the National Endowment for Financial Education’s (NEFE) comprehensive curriculum, as well as the award-winning BizKid$ program, this “train-the-trainer” workshop is being offered at no cost, and will be held at the University FCU Plaza Event Center.

This one-day program is designed to arm credit unions, educators, non-profit organizations and community leaders with the skills they need to motivate young people into adopting positive savings and spending habits. 

Revised in 2012, the NEFE HSFPP is a turnkey financial literacy program specifically focused on basic personal finance skills that are relevant to the lives of pre-teens, teens, and young adults.  Organized into six module topics (planning, borrowing, earning capability, investing, financial services, and insurance), the program includes six topical Student Guides, an assortment of 45-minute teacher lesson plans, and a growing collection of online resources and learning activities.

BizKid$ is a financial literacy initiative that includes an award winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, a website and a monthly online newsletter targeting children 9 – 16 years old.
