With the recent momentum around financial literacy education mandates this year in states such as Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Georgia and South Carolina, there are now fifteen states that require a personal finance course for high school graduates. EVERFI is excited to see state legislatures continue to focus on financial education as a need, because we know how important it is to set students up for success in life. But we know that when these mandates are passed, it means that district administrators and teachers take on a big project in terms of building out these personal finance courses, selecting partners and curriculum to align to standards and making sure that their district is able to meet the mandate by the deadline set by the legislature. And it also means training new teachers as well who can teach these courses.

EVERFI aligns with Jump$tart standards, and we are here to help teachers and administrators nationwide navigate these financial education mandates in their districts. Even if your state doesn’t yet have a personal finance education mandate, these critical lessons are still very valuable in preparing your students for career and life success, and helping them to thrive in an ever-changing world.

EVERFI is here to support educators this school year and beyond by offering engaging, self-paced lessons that your students can access anywhere. Thanks to hundreds of strategic partners who share this mission, EVERFI provides these digital resources to K-12 schools, districts and students free of charge.

EVERFI’s High School Financial Wellness Suite offers educators the platform to create a comprehensive, customized digital learning experience, deepening student knowledge around a range of personal finance topics. For those familiar with EVERFI’s foundational high school program, EVERFI – Financial Literacy, we’re thrilled to add two extension programs to round-out your curriculum.

  • Build: Credit Fundamentals: is a digital program that helps high school students build knowledge about acquiring credit, growing credit, managing credit and dealing with fraud or inaccuracies with credit in effective ways. Students will learn to make wise decisions that support their current and future financial well-being, with an emphasis on building and maintaining good credit strategies.

  • Grow: Financial Planning for Life: is a digital program that helps teach high school students how to make wise financial decisions to promote financial well-being over their lifetime. Immersive digital environments and diverse characters bring modern, relevant financial education objectives to life. Students accelerate their financial understanding through problem-solving, self-reflection and games that provide real-life scenarios for practice.

Along with one new program we’ve added to our middle school curriculum.

  • SaveUp: Saving Money for the Future: This course will provide middle schoolers the knowledge and skills they need to become informed consumers on how to save money, thus prompting them to begin saving as early as possible. Students will learn why saving is important, how to budget and spend wisely, why savings can help reach financial goals, and how to open a savings account.

FutureSmart – personal finance educational resources are also available to families and educators through the MassMutual Foundation. Starting on August 29, FutureSmart students are eligible to enter a middle school scholarship contest for an opportunity to be awarded a prize (deadline to apply is January 11, 2023).

In April 2022, EVERFI released the results of a student survey on the financial understanding and preparedness of thousands of high school juniors and seniors nationwide. The survey found that these students — nearing their transition to adulthood — report low levels of readiness to take on potential near-term financial tasks, from evaluating financial products to establishing and maintaining credit to understanding how to pay for college.

With these recent findings, EVERFI is committed to continuing to bring free financial literacy education to millions of K-12 students across North America.
