Moving Financial Literacy Forward
We bring the real world to the classroom through dynamic partnerships with organizations that share our mission to positively impact youth achievement in key areas, including Financial Literacy, Social-Emotional Learning, STEM and more. Our financial literacy programs with Jackson Charitable Foundation, Discover Financial Services and CME Group empower K-12 educators with resources to teach students the skills they need to take hold of their financial futures.
Discovery Education and Jackson Charitable Foundation are proud to present Cha-Ching™ Money Smart Kids! This partnership amplifies this engaging and fun financial literacy program, extending its impact to schools and homes across America. Developed in partnership with Jackson Charitable Foundation and children’s education expert, Dr. Alice Wilder, the storylines have been written around the four key concepts of money: Earn, Save, Spend, and Donate.
Pathway to Financial Success empowers middle and high school students to take control of their financial futures. Educators can help students and their families explore comprehensive financial literacy resources to gain the tools and skills they need to make sound financial decisions and achieve their personal goals.
CME Group partnered with Discovery Education to create Econ Essentials, a growing collection of interactive resources that introduce high school students to vital economics and financial principals through the lens of futures, as part of the Futures Fundamentals program. These standards-aligned curriculum tools provide students with practical real-world knowledge brought to life by the industry-leading insights of Futures Fundamentals.
We are excited to continue to expand the portfolio of digital resources available to educators, students and families at no-cost through each of these financial literacy programs. Each program features standards-aligned content to support engagement wherever learning is taking place, including interactive models, classroom activities, videos, professional learning resources and more!
