Developed in partnership with the Florida Department of Financial Services.
The various aspects of finances are not always easy to teach or learn; the Finance Your Future course strives to be a solution to both. The course provides a comprehensive yet simple overview of various financial topics like banking; budgeting and saving; credit and debt; insurance; and financial frauds and scams.
The target audience for the online financial literacy course is middle and high school students. However, parents, teachers and other adults will also benefit from the material- as a refresher or learning it for the first time. They will also be able to assist in clarifying the information for students when questions arise.
The course consists of 8 modules. Each module introduces one financial topic and covers several sub-topics more in depth. Each module includes interactive activities such as budgeting and credit card games that the participant can play; real-life examples and scenarios like going through the car purchasing or leasing process, or filling out a check; short quizzes throughout to gauge knowledge gained; and a final test once the module is complete.
