HIgh School Teachers! Get on the list for free financial literacy curriculum for your classroom

2010 EIFLE Award At a time of widespread economic turmoil and financial challenge, it is more important than ever that teens are given the knowledge and skills they need to manage their money wisely and to make smart decisions for the future. In response, The Actuarial Foundation has released Building Your Future, an engaging and relevant financial literacy curriculum to help teens master the foundational elements of personal finance and to prepare for life after high school.

Building Your Future helps students easily grasp the essentials of personal finance, gives them multiple opportunities to practice core skills and showcases the real-world impact of the financial decisions they make. Each chapter is classroom ready, with a Teacher's Guide that provides handouts and answer keys, instruction and assessment suggestions, definitions, and resources that align with national mathematics and personal financial education standards.
