Many of our teachers were initially nervous about teaching financial literacy due to the vast number of topics and limited content knowledge. However, NGPF professional development offers a wide range of engaging learning opportunities and has greatly boosted their confidence. They have become much more knowledgeable and walked away with resources that can be applied immediately – not only to the classroom but also to their lives.

NGPF offers various grants, often in partnership with philanthropic organizations, to help support the successful implementation of personal finance education. Please note that some of these opportunities may be limited to particular states and some are on an invite-only basis.
When our district mandated a financial literacy course for graduation, NGPF was there for us. They awarded the FEE Grant that provided for a full-time coordinator position to support implementation. NGPF has the best, most flexible professional development and their resources are our go-to materials – for newbies and experienced fin lit teachers alike. NGPF can meet anyone at their level and provide what they need to be successful in the classroom.
