"Strategies for Increasing Financial Literacy for Minnesota Youth"
President & CEO of Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest
The rapidly changing education and business landscapes will require changes in how students are taught and prepared to succeed in our global economy. Junior Achievement is embarking upon a major transformational plan to integrate technology and adapt new ways in which students learn and share. An important component of the national research was completed locally with key education thought leaders; 21st century skills and financial literacy were strong learning outcomes that surfaced as priorities. Ms. Blayney will present insights from local and national interviews as well as strategies that will shape the future of business/education partnerships.
This event also includes three breakout sessions: One on K-12 financial education tips and lessons plans for educators, one on financial information and tips for parents to talk to their kids about money, and a session with an economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. There will also be resources from community and educational organizations, tours of the Fed and light snacks and beverages.
