Become an Advocate

Are you concerned about the lack of personal finance education available to young citizens in your local high school? If so, become an advocate for your high school’s students’ financial sophistication education! How can you be an advocate? Talk to your local high school principal and school board members. Find out how personal finance topics are being taught in your local high school. Advocate for your local high school to offer a personal finance elective course or require financial sophistication training as a graduation requirement. Make sure your local high school is providing teachers with the training that will give them the confidence, skills and curriculum tools that they need to be successful in the classroom.
