The Financial EduNation Campaign empowers financial professionals to raise awareness among parents, educators and community members while they share personal finance lessons with today’s youth. The financial literacy resources form part of the NFEC’s Financial EduNation campaign, a national financial literacy initiative that seeks to improve youth financial capability by having financial professional teach children about money.

Financial literacy can improve their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and the lives of their global network.
