Financial Literacy

New Financial Literacy Curriculum for Spring, 2022

We are partnering with Kiddom to provide financial literacy curriculum for high schools and colleges. The materials meet or exceed the Texas and other state requirements for financial literacy for high school graduation. This topic is also frequently included in college level first-year experience courses. We anticipate a spring, 2022 completion date for these materials.
