Financial Literacy

An astounding 95% of Americans wish personal finance was taught in schools.

Banks, credit unions, government agencies and other financial institutions rely on NTC to educate their communities about financial literacy, investing, securities and fraud prevention.

We offer financial literacy programming at the elementary, middle and high school level. We know firsthand that reaching students early with basic information on saving, spending, and different types of money management can prepare young students to be financially secure later in life.

Middle and high school programs feature advanced information on paying for college, preparing for long-term careers, investing, cybersecurity and other vital subjects that contribute to overall wealth and a stronger workforce. By preparing current and future financial customers to use money wisely, we help our clients build more prosperous and secure communities, benefitting both individuals and financial organizations.  

What can you do to ensure students become financially literate before entering the workforce? Implement an NTC program that teaches all about money management — from debt to savings and everything in between – and start making a difference in the financial success of our next generation.

Educational Points

Every NTC program is built around four educational points and supported by the curriculum connected to those points. The points vary to appropriately connect to different grade bands in the K-12 setting and align with state and national education standards, as well as provide specificity to each client’s message. As your industry priorities evolve, the flexibility of the educational point library allows your NTC program to share distinct information with your school communities.

Featured Programs

Spend it or Save it

Spend it or Save it presents entertaining and educational lessons in financial literacy for grades 6-8. In an experience described as “a rollercoaster in a spaceship blasting off to a planet made of money,” students will participate in three interactive financial literacy scenes. One that will teach the difference between needs and wants, one that demonstrates the importance of saving and investing, and finally, the entire audience will learn for themselves the difference between credit and debit. Students and teachers will also have access to an exclusive e-learning package that is provided to expand upon the educational content of the program, including the FDIC’s Money Smart 2.0 online curriculum.

Financial Literacy Pack

The Financial Literacy Pack is a livestream series that supports financial literacy in the classroom. Easy to implement by the educator and easy to provide by a sponsor, this six-part series focuses on each topic and provides supporting educational materials for its further understanding week by week. Every episode begins and ends with sponsor branding and messaging.

  • Spend it or Save it (Budgeting and saving)
  • Pay to Play (Credit, debit, new payment methods)
  • Buyer Beware (Consumer protection)
  • Fund Your Future (Financial planning, loans, investing)
  • Calculated Risk (Contracts, risk, insurance)
  • Cha Ching (Benefits, income, taxes)

What’s Your Goal?

54% of teenagers are worried about financing their futures, including higher education. This high school level financial literacy program connects students to their real life money habits but imagining a path to reach their financial goals. Supported by curriculum, the live event focuses on spending and investing in day-to-day life and how that translates into year-long gains or losses. Interactive and age appropriate, this program serves as a kick-off for the more thorough Money Smart curriculum.

Connect2Next

Connect2Next is a STEM career pathways educational program that cultivates the next generation to be curious, critical thinkers who are eager to build STEM skills and solve problems. We have offered high school programs that center on careers in STEM industries like finance for some time, allowing companies to recruit and inspire their future workforce – but our full curriculum goes as low as upper elementary school to respond to the changing trajectory of students’ matriculation. From growing awareness of the financial workforce to recruiting for specific training opportunities, we work to get students and their families excited about STEM and the major role it plays in society and the economy.

In order to truly foster equality among an organization’s employees, there must be attention paid to the intersection of financial wellness and DEI.
