Financial Educators Day
A Day to Recognize Financial Educators
Financial Educators Day recognizes those individuals who are working to improve the financial capabilities of people in their communities. While taking the opportunity to recognize traditional educators, we also extend our thanks to volunteers, financial professionals, concerned citizens, and others who teach financial literacy. All these individuals are invaluable to the effort.
Financial Educators Day takes place the last Friday of April each year. In 2017 the event is scheduled for April 28 (see below for a 10-year schedule). Initial support from politicians, celebrities, and organizations in the financial literacy industry have transformed the last Friday of each April into a day of recognition, celebration, and advocacy.
The NFEC has honored several hundred educators from over 44 states and 14 countries. These awards serve as public recognition for their efforts and contributions to the financial literacy movement.
FLEC (Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship & Career Education)
FLEC subjects have a direct impact on the future financial security of our nation’s youth. Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship & Career Education are directly related to young people’s ability to earn and manage their money; yet they are missing from most school curricula.
The National Financial Educators Council has formed the FLEC alliance to promote financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and career education in schools. The FLEC Alliance provides resources for those who teach these subjects while raising awareness about the vital role such education has on the financial well-being of individuals and communities across the country.
Goals of the alliance are to make FLEC education a national priority and promote this agenda so future generations become financially prepared for life.
