How SecureFutures can help
- Proven history in teen financial empowerment: Since 2006, we have partnered with more than 200 schools and community sites to bring a proven financial literacy curriculum to teenagers. Our lessons cover many of the aspects of the state’s standards. Lessons are flexible for your classrooms, schools and teens, and can be tailored to your specific education needs. All of our lessons are taught by trained volunteers from your business community.
- Connections with state education leaders: Our organization has advocated for statewide financial literacy since the start. Our leaders are involved in financial literacy groups in Madison. We have shared our thoughts on this legislation since it was first introduced and have given our insight to lawmakers. And we will continue to partner with state education leaders as this mandate evolves into classroom action for your students.
- The ultimate goal is to help students: As a leader in Wisconsin financial education, we know where we would be a good fit for students and where other options may work better for schools and educators. Our nonprofit exists to make sure every teen receives financial fundamentals. So, we’re not in competition with other resources or organizations. We are happy to share what we can do for your students to meet and exceed this financial literacy requirement, even if that means pointing you in the direction of another capable organization. For us, it is all about making sure teens are prepared for their financial futures.
