Personal Finance Curriculum

The NFEC has created a personal finance curriculum that has been praised for its adherence to core educational standards using a fun format that engages and entertains participants. No matter their age or background, students leave the program feeling ready to take positive action toward securing their financial futures.

The NFEC is an independent organization, and its personal finance lessons include no marketing or promotions.
