Did you know:
A 2009 National Endowment for Education survey showed that 44 states have now adopted personal finance education standards. Yet only 37% of K-12 teachers have taken even one college personal finance course. Quite simply, a lack of qualified educators exists. We give you skills to fill this shortage. The simple NIFEL system is the most successful training program of its kind in the U.S. Since its inception in 2000, it has given over 1,300 educators from 13 states expertise and a career edge—FAST.
We offer ...
- An unmatched group of expert guest presenters.
- A trove of hard-to-find resources and curricula that would take you countless hours to compile yourself.
- Unlimited networking opportunities with other financial literacy educators and experts in the field.
Who benefits most, and who should attend?
