Free Foundation FOCUS Train-the-Trainer Session on April 24 in Houston
Wednesday, April 15, 2015 6:20 AM

Online registration continues for the FOCUS "Train-the-Trainer" workshop covering 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 to 16 years old.

The workshop 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 event takes place April 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at MemberSource Credit Union in Houston, Texas.

These train-the-trainer sessions are open to credit union staff, teachers, and community partners who are interested in teaching or distributing the NEFE HSFPP and BizKid$ program. 

The NEFE HSFPP is a turnkey financial literacy program specifically focused on basic personal finance skills 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.
