HELPING STUDENTS MAKE INFORMED FINANCIAL DECISIONS

Our goal is to reach and teach every child to create a more informed citizenry capable of making better decisions as savers, investors, borrowers, voters, and participants in the global economy. We do this by educating the educators: providing the curriculum tools, the pedagogical support, and the community of peers that instruct, inspire, and guide. All resources and programs are developed by educators, and delivered by our national and state network of affiliates—over 240 across the country. Each year, we train approximately 55,000 teachers in person, and those teachers, in turn, reach approximately 5 million students throughout the country. EconEdLink – our free, online educator gateway for economic and personal finance lesson.
