CFPB and FDIC are working together to help young people in America build skills for making financial decisions. We believe financial education has the power to help children and youth achieve their own financial goals throughout their lives. Here you will find materials and resources designed to help you in the classroom. To support you, we are also working with community partners and banks to help create hands-on programs, including youth savings accounts connected to financial education, for schools and communities. The resources here can help you answer your own questions about financial topics – and share that information with your students.
FDIC Money Smart is a free suite of financial education curricula developed to help children, youth and adults of all ages learn more about financial topics.
Educators have many demands on their time. We have assembled teacher videos, success stories from the field and links to government-sponsored financial education web sites that can help you save time when developing lesson plans and assignments.
