Credit union staff and educators are invited to join the California and Nevada Youth Involvement Network (CNYIN) for a free webinar from 9-10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 30 on the National Endowment for Financial Education’s (NEFE) High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP).

NEFE’s HSFPP director Susan Sharkey will discuss the new program materials, take attendees on a tour of the new HSFPP website, and relate how credit unions can use the program to teach teens as well as support teachers in their communities. In addition, attendees will become familiar with the program module topics, learn how to access program materials, explore how the program content fits into existing programs, and examine other NEFE resources for teens.

Since its inception in 1984, the NEFE program has reached more than seven million students in all 50 states and military bases in more than 100 countries. The California and Nevada Youth Involvement Network promotes youth financial education in the two states.
