Next Gen Personal Finance: Classroom Rewards

Update 9/29: Sign up slots for the Next Gen Personal Finance program have all been filled. 

--

Thanks to generous funding from Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF), high school and middle school teachers like you are invited to use free financial literacy resources (including projects, activities, case studies, interactives, data crunches and fine prints) from NGPF.

Through NGPF’s partnership with DonorsChoose.org, NGPF will be bringing their engaging and easy-to-implement activities to hundreds of classrooms. NGPF knows that you understand the importance of financial literacy, so they developed a list of their most popular resources for you to use with your students (see list below). To thank you for bringing this gift of financial literacy to your class, NGPF is offering a $200 DonorsChoose.org gift code that you can apply to a classroom project request of your choosing. All middle and high school teachers who have not participated in the Next Gen Personal Finance program last spring are eligible for this rewards program - with a maximum of one reward per teacher.
