CUs Encouraged to Take Advantage of Free Financial Education Train the Trainer Workshops
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 6:45 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation is holding a free FOCUS “Train-the-Trainer” workshop Sept. 19 in Austin. University FCU is hosting the event at its Plaza Event Center located at 8303 North Mopac Expressway. This free 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.

The FOCUS “Train-the-Trainer” workshop covers BizKid$ and the National Endowment for Financial Education High School Financial Planning Program (NEFE HSFPP). 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.

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.
