In keeping with its commitment to help improve the financial knowledge of young people, the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation (Foundation) has scheduled four FOCUS “Train the Trainers” seminars. This one-day 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. 

Utilizing the National Endowment for Financial Education’s (NEFE) comprehensive curriculum, as well as the award-winning BizKid$ program, these “train-the-trainers” seminars are being offered at no cost on the following dates:

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.

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.
