WHAT WE DO:
The FoolProof Foundation’s free web driven curriculums teach young people the importance of using caution, questioning sellers, and relying on independent research before spending money. In 2013 high school students alone made over 17 million page views of our curriculum.
FoolProof’s programs were developed by consumer advocates, teachers and students, not by marketers. “We believe it is our realistic and frank messaging that has made FoolProof so popular with students and teachers,” said FoolProof founder Will deHoo. We look forward to thousands of new teachers joining FoolProof’s initiative in 2014!”
Unique endorsements: FoolProof’s web-driven curriculum is currently the only financial literacy curriculum in the United States that is endorsed by both the National Association of Consumer Advocates and the Consumer Federation of America.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Our messages are realistic and frank.
We provide four separate curriculums: All curriculums feature only young people as teachers, and rely on more than 100 interactive videos
