Students of today truly are the future of tomorrow, so we want to be sure that the students of our community have the right knowledge base and tools to be financially savvy in the future. In order to make this happen, we've partnered with EverFi to provide a web-based e-learning platform geared toward teaching high school students how to manage their finances.
This online course uses the latest in new media technologies to engage students:
This program fully integrates into a school's curriculum and covers more than 600 topics including:
The system even tracks the students’ progress and reports each individual's unique score, so the students know exactly where they are. Upon completion of the course, students are officially certified in Financial Literacy, which can later be distinguished on resumes and college applications. Finally, a ceremony is planned in each community to award students their certificate. These students are also eligible for First Security Scholarships which are awarded at the ceremony.
Before now, how many local high school students would you consider discussing your IRA or 401(k) with? With an impactful financial learning tool like EverFi in your community schools, you might want to re-evaluate that answer.
