Financial Literacy

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.
