SUBJECTS

  • Financial Literacy

It is more important than ever for students to learn the fundamentals of money management, saving and investing. This workshop will help teachers supplement investor education for themselves and their students. Attendees will also be given a personalized tour of the Museum of American Finance. You will also be introduced to CEE’s free online personal finance game the “Gen i Revolution.” The online game is set in a fictional world, not unlike ours, going through a similar financial and economic crisis. Players work with a team of characters (avatars) to provide personal financial advice and financial power to the people. Each mission of the game is linked to a topic in CEE’s publication, Learning, Earning and Investing for a New Generation. This book and game are also compatible with the Stock Market Game. So, join the Gen i Revolution and fight financial illiteracy!
