FDIC Unveils ‘Money Smart’ Curricula for Youth

The FDIC today unveiled Money Smart for Young People, a set of four financial education curricula aimed at young people from pre-kindergarten through high school.

Each curriculum — targeted for a particular age range — includes lesson plans and videos to help teachers integrate financial literacy into math, language arts and social studies. Money Smart for Young People also includes guides for parents and caregivers to complement classroom instruction with training at home.

As part of Financial Capability Month, 14,000 bankers across the country are delivering financial education lessons to more than 290,000 children this week through ABA’s Teach Children to Save program. Teach Children to Save offers bankers, teachers and parents free resources for delivering financial education at any time via aba.com/teach.
