About Our Program

Personal Finance—something all students should be introduced to

NEFE’s High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP) is a turnkey financial literacy program specifically focused on basic personal finance skills that are relevant to the lives of pre-teens, teens, and young adults.

We support teachers and community organizations as they help youth build a solid foundation for financial independence and decision making. Whether or not you have experience teaching personal finance, you will find our instructional materials easy to use and adaptable for your situation. Choose to use some or all of the lessons and activities as you decide what works for your students and timeframes.

Organized into six module topics (planning, borrowing, earning capability, investing, financial services, and insurance), the program includes six topical Student Guides, an assortment of 45-minute teacher lesson plans, and a growing collection of online resources and learning activities.
