NEFE High School Financial Planning Program®

NIFA and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) are major partners with NEFE for the delivery and evaluation of the NEFE® High School Financial Planning Program®. Each year, more than 500,000 students complete the six-unit curriculum. It emphasizes such concepts as managing credit, saving to achieve financial goals, and owning and protecting assets. A nationwide program evaluation in 1997-98—to be replicated in 2004—showed that the program resulted in statistically significant knowledge, behavior, and confidence improvements by students. For example, nearly half of the students started saving or began saving more.
