In 2021, FitMoney continued expanding financial literacy education by promoting accessibility and discovery across the country. Explore our accomplishments from this year, and then join our mission to empower students for a financially fit future.
This year, we built...
SPANISH AND ELEMENTARY CERTIFICATE EXPANSIONS
Following the success of our 2020 Financially Fit Certificate launch, the FitMoney team created new programming to bring our critical lessons and modules to new audiences. With the expansion of the Spanish Certificate, an all-new Junior Certificate for grades 3rd-5th, and new lessons for returning students on today's most valuable topics, the Certificate program has certified over 1,000 students as financially fit... with many more to come.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EDUCATORS
This November, FitMoney went virtual to support educators around the world in how to best support students on their journeys to financial fitness. Featuring keynotes from Ed Steinborn, CFO of Wellington Management, and Jen Price, Head of School at BB&N, our team collaborated with leaders to customize strategies both in and outside of the classroom.
A NEW, EXCITING APPROACH TO FINANCIAL FORWARD-THINKING
Partnering with eight local banks, FitMoney pioneered the virtual Credit for Life Fair, a modern and engaging approach to encouraging students to understand how smart financial decisions add up. Through the app and virtual program, over 2,500 students across New England learned how to budget with real life scenarios and engaged with experts on how they can make the best decisions.
VOICES ADVOCATING FOR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
FitMoney Executive Director Jessica Pelletier testified at the Massachusetts Joint Education Committee Hearing on Financial Literacy. Our team advocated for the importance of beginning financial education early in elementary schools where habits like spending and saving are initially formed.
A GROWING COMMUNITY OF THOUSANDS
Rated four-stars by Common Sense, our programming is now reaching thousands of students who are more prepared for a financially fit future than ever before. As we look ahead, we are growing our community with new platforms and interactive game-based learning for K-6.
Our curriculum is free for teachers and schools because of the generous donations from you.
Your role in our success this year has been critical, and we aim to build even more in our journey to come.
