Personal Finance Lesson Plans

The personal finance lesson plans the NFEC has developed are designed to connect with and entertain audiences, while also meeting core standards for financial education. The lesson plans have been widely recognized for their ability to reach participants from all demographics and mobilize them toward positive action to improve their finances.

A 100% independent organization, the NFEC can guarantee that its personal finance presentations are purely educational. These lesson plans were created with the guidance of the NFEC Curriculum Advisory Board, a group of experts, educators, and financial professionals dedicated to writing personal finance lessons that bridge the gap between theory and practice.
