Foundation Helps Prepare CUs to Deploy Financial Ed in Their Local Schools
Wednesday, September 25, 2013 6:25 AM

Credit unions across the nation are reaching out to youth and improving financial education with the implementation of the National Endowment for Financial Education’s High School Financial Planning Program (NEFE HSFPP) in their local schools and community. And the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation is helping to ensure credit unions are prepared for this important endeavor by providing free “Train the Trainer” sessions.

This one-day interactive and hands on training program offered by the Foundations is open to credit union staff, teachers, and community partners, interested in teaching or distributing the NEFE HSFPP and/or BizKid$.

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.

The Foundation is offering the one-day program on the following dates:
