What past Program participants have shared:
"I am confident in my knowledge about financial literacy but as a new teacher, I want to learn the best ways to convey that knowledge into pieces that students can understand and comprehend."
"I have learned many financial concepts and words, more confident about making financial decisions for my family. As a teacher, I feel more empowered to help my students understand finances."
"A curriculum and resources to be able to teach a high school course would be greatly appreciated. I never learned about financial literacy in school and have only learned through experience."
