With Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2017, #FinLit, #afinlitfuture) right around the corner, we wanted to share with you our plans! NGPF has a full slate of activity planned for the month of April with contests, PD opportunities and resources that you won’t want to miss.

Get A Sneak Peak at NGPF’s One-Semester Course; Register for our April 25th Webinar

We hear it all the time — “Your website has SO many great resources, I don’t know where to start.” Or, “There’s no way I could teach all of your units in my one-semester course; how do I choose?” We’ve heard your requests and are excited to launch our One-Semester Course! Join us on Tuesday, April 25, as we unveil this new Course Map. Register today!

Attend this webinar and you WILL:
(1) Be one of the first to see the scope and sequence as well as units and individual lessons for NGPF’s latest creation — a curated course meant to be taught in one semester’s time.
(2) Receive customized support in making this course a reality at your school for the next school year.
(3) Be able to ask questions and have them answered immediately.
(4) Receive a certificate for one hour of professional development credit.
