At 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union supporting our communities also means
supporting our students. Together with EVERFI, a leading education technology
company, we were able to bring a digital-based financial education program to
2,659 students for a total of 12,904 hours of learning across 12 local schools.
The program enabled students to practice and develop healthy financial habits
through real-world scenarios and engaging educational interactions.
Prior to the
start of the program, students took a financial education assessment. At the
end of the program, another assessment was given and showed that students had
increased their scores by 55%! Our learners saw the most gains in the areas of
credit & debt, insurance, and budgeting.
partnership with EVERFI has allowed students to learn important financial
skills at no cost to the district, schools, or teachers. Our goal remains to
give as many students as possible access to this crucial financial education
program. The combination of knowledge, confidence, and healthy habits sets
learners up for financial well being now and in the future. These skills will
undoubtedly serve students well in their journey to financial success.
