Millions of young students graduate from high school every year to start their first experience at living independently, yet many of them lack rudimentary knowledge of personal financial concepts. They make credit decisions as they take on student loans, sign leases for apartments, open bank and credit card accounts without realizing how these decisions impact their future. This two-day workshop will provide a scope and sequence curriculum to teach a successful personal finance course using engaging resources and student-centered activities. This workshop is a must for teachers who have never taught personal finance or have money problems of their own.

Participants will leave with:

  • Teacher’s Edition and Student workbook for Financial Fitness for Life (Grades 9–12)
  • Thumb drive with entire K–12 FFFL program including parent’s guides in English and Spanish.
  • Additional lessons from and other websites to supplement and engage teaching and learning.
  • Another 20 plus interactive lessons on personal finance from CEE State Council and Federal Reserve websites.
  • 12 Continuing Education Units.
  • Lunch provided.
