The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) recognizes that financial literacy is a vital component of helping Americans live healthy financial lives, and that financial literacy education in the United States is a particularly important goal. FPA actively advocates and encourages schools to teach the basic components of personal financial management to help with vital financial functions such as understanding credit, savings, loans, home and rent responsibilities and how to manage debt responsibly. Doing so will help with the overall goal of preparing students for independence and financial wellness.

As the leading membership organization for professional financial planners, FPA members work with people every day to provide comprehensive financial planning advice that is in the clients’ best interest. FPA members work with clients on topics ranging from budgeting, debt management, student loans, credit card debt, insurance, taxes, retirement, investments and estate planning. And many members and chapters are actively supporting underserved communities with pro bono financial planning.

FPA members and chapters continue to provide one-on-one pro bono financial planning services to underserved and at-risk individuals. Whether it is online or in-person the services provided make a huge difference in people’s lives. The FPA Pro Bono Program connects passionate financial planning practitioners to individuals, families, and communities in need.  Learn more here.

New to this year’s FPA NexGen Gathering event is a Financial Literacy activity built into the conference. We have teamed with Jobs for Nevada Graduates to give high school students onsite training on personal finance and financial literacy. Conference attendees will join these students in the Junior Achievement Personal Finance Program covering topics like earning, employment and income, investing, credit and debt. Perfect timing as these high school seniors will be preparing to embark on their next chapter. Click here to learn more about FPA NexGen Gathering 2022.
