FOCUS Train the Trainer Sessions

Foundation FOCUS

As part of its Foundation FOCUS financial literacy campaign, the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation invites you to attend a FREE FOCUS training session, featuring the NEFE (National Endowment for Financial Education) High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP) and the award winning BizKid$ program.  These “Train the Trainer” sessions are open to credit union staff, teachers, and community partners who are interested in teaching or distributing these materials.

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 topics (planning, borrowing, earning capability, investing, financial services, and insurance), the program includes Student Modules, 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.

Participants will receive teacher lesson plans, student workbooks, and practical hands on content training.
