Wednesday, May 7, 2014 6:40 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation is hosting FOCUS “Train-the-Trainer” workshop June 5, in Oklahoma City, Okla. This free one-day workshop, being held at the Credit Union House, 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. Online registration for the June 5 workshop is available.

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.

The workshop is also being held on the following dates:

  • May 30, Odessa, Texas
