Next Gen Personal Finance Announces 2017 NGPF Summer Institute Fellows

Next Gen Personal Finance is pleased to announce its 2017 class of NGPF Summer Institute Fellows. Due to the success of last year’s Institute, we increased our investment and will be hosting TWO Summer Institute sessions – which means 24 outstanding educators will be joining us in Palo Alto this summer! The Institute brings together a passionate and talented group of educators who will create new activities, curate resources, collaborate and deepen their content expertise in selected topics — and have a lot of FUN in the process!

Once again, we received an overwhelming number of applications for the Summer Institute, highlighting the hunger for quality professional development opportunities. To meet this need, NGPF is underwriting the cost for TEN FinCamps to be delivered throughout the U.S. in 2017. What’s a FinCamp? Check out the details (including a video) here. We currently have four FinCamps already on the calendar, so please contact Laura, our Director of Teacher Engagement at laura@nextgenpersonalfinance.org, if you are interested in learning more.
