Sponsorship Opportunities

The NFEC’s programming is holistic and supports both learners and educators. The comprehensive program is aligned with educational standards, TPACK framework, and eLearning best practices.

Learners

The NFEC’s programming is grounded in constructivist theory. That means learners construct their own understanding by participating in real-world financial activities and then reflecting on the lessons delivered via the eLearning Platform and live instruction presentation resources. The learner-centered approach to education applies scaffolding, simulation, project-based learning, case studies, and other accepted educational strategies. Theprogram is designed to help participants assimilate what they learn, and then translate knowledge into action.

Educators

Research has established that teachers are the single most important variable contributing to student success, regardless of student age.(1) Because the qualifications of financial educators have direct impact both on short-term student outcomes and on their long-term financial well-being, the NFEC’s programming offers materials to support educator development and class facilitation. The NFEC curriculum is aligned with the TPACK (Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge) educational framework that identifies the skills educators should possess in order to teach effectively.

Community Personal Finance Programs
by Alex Rydell

The NFEC’s social enterprise fund provides complimentary personal finance programs to nonprofit organization and schools across the country.  Through collaborative efforts with financial professionals, advocates and concerned citizens the NFEC’s personal finance education material is serving people in over a thousand communities across the United States and twenty-eight countries around the world.

The NFEC provides turnkey financial education resources for those financial professionals and concerned citizens who seek to improve their community’s financial capability while raising awareness and building community goodwill.  Providing training and tools to help professionals and concerned citizens connect with their target audiences. The NFEC is dedicated to helping outreach partners accomplish their business and personal goals while spreading the message of financial literacy.

By providing people in the community a practical financial education, it shows the financial professionals take a long term approach to working with clients.  Giving them the foundation knowledge necessary to build their credit, establish a savings plan, set financial goals and other essential personal money management topics, the financial professional is able to build future qualified clients.

This is a long-term strategy that also offers near-term benefits.  Media coverage, expanded network, new clients and increased top of mind awareness are all possible benefits a financial professional can experience during the launch of the Financial EduNation campaign.  Many of the people that are exposed to the promotions start thinking about their personal financial planning and many understand the importance of receiving professional guidance.

This and a host of other money management topics highlight the personal finance programs promoted by the National Financial Educators Council.

Providing personal finance programs can enrich the lives of those that live within the community and help financial professionals meet their business goals.  Many financial professionals and community advocates are energized when they receive touching emails from recipients that took part in the Financial EduNation Campaign and the difference it has made in their life.

To help us become savvy enough to invest with the best, financial literacy programs can be quite helpful. The NFEC (www.financialeducatorscouncil.org) offers a wide range of products, programs, and services at both the individual and group levels. For those individuals interested in teaching personal finance, the NFEC has a certification program. The Certified Financial Education Instructor training prepares graduates to teach personal finance effectively, matches them with presentation opportunities, and positions them as qualified instructors who are also members of the Personal Finance Speakers Association. Thus the NFEC can help you put together a team of advisors with the qualifications and expertise you need.
