The HSFPP materials are intended to be used in classrooms or workshop settings where teens interact with an instructor. Seek out opportunities to introduce the program to educators and youth organization leaders in your area. Our materials are designed to stand alone or complement other resources, so point out how the HSFPP can fit into any personal finance program.

Take Action

  • Share information About the Program.
  • Order a marketing kit with sample materials. Order one for yourself and extras to leave behind when you meet with decision-makers.
  • Talk to educators and community leaders to tell them about the value of personal finance education and the benefits of the HSFPP.
