Welcome Teachers

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) are working together to make it easier for schools to bring financial education into the classroom by developing a one-stop-shop for educators.

Here you will find tools to help you teach financial education including lesson plans, videos, and other resources.

In support of this effort, we are also working with community partners and banks to create hands-on programs including youth savings accounts connected to financial education for schools and communities.
