Need for Money Education Opens up Financial Literacy Jobs
Recent research conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has predicted that, by the year 2050, over 30% of current workers will have zero money saved in a 401(k)-style retirement account. A quote from the National Association of State Boards of Education’s recent report backs up this statistic: “Most workers are not participating sufficiently in retirement plans to allow comfortable retirement.” This information points up the need for more widespread personal finance education, and explains why more and more financial literacy jobs have become available nationwide.
The National Financial Educators Council, the nation’s leading creator of free financial literacy programs, has begun to train financial educators, professionals, and consultants. Typically, certification to become an educator takes about a month; 3-6 months to become a professional; and 1.5-3 years to gain consultant status. The NFEC hopes to turn out enough financial literacy educators to fill the growing need.
In process to becoming a paid consultant, anyone with an interest in helping others can become a financial literacy volunteer. Many opportunities exist to contribute to building the financial competencies of one’s neighbors and community. For example, groups across the country are working to present money management programs to kids and teenagers. Volunteering to help will lend valuable experience toward certification as an instructor later on.
The NFEC offers financial literacy websites, curriculum, and resources that are excellent learning tools for those who seek to break into the financial education field. As potential consultants begin to gain vital knowledge about spreading financial literacy, they will also learn how to evaluate the effectiveness of programs. The NFEC advocates administering a financial literacy test to participants both before and after delivering a program, to determine how well the initiative worked. This step is essential to becoming an effective consultant and becoming prepared to break into the financial literacy industry.
