High School Financial Education Now Available in Spanish

Students Learn Financial Basics



The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE ) has translated its widely-used High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP) student guide to Spanish. It is available online for Spanish speakers and teachers to use in learning or teaching about personal finances.



"By offering this translation, youth whose primary language is Spanish can readily gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage money; a lifelong skill," said Jane Schuchardt, national program leader at USDA's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES). CSREES partnered with NEFE to revise the HSFPP.



CSREES has maintained a memorandum of understanding since 1991 with NEFE to update, deliver and evaluate the HSFPP. The Cooperative Extension Service provides local leadership for the HSFPP in 48 states and the District of Columbia, primarily by marketing the program locally and training teachers.



To download the Spanish student guide, parents and students can go to their respective sections within hsfpp.nefe.org and click on the "Programa en Espa ol" link on the left-hand navigation. Teachers may also access the information in the Instructor section of the HSFPP Web portal at http://hsfpp.nefe.org.



The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and America's Credit Unions provided funding for the Spanish translation.



The NEFE High School Financial Planning Program was recently revised and has been linked to education standards in all 50 states. In addition, the new HSFPP is supported by a dynamic Web site that offers a large, continually changing collection of materials for teachers, students and parents. For more information on the HSFPP, visit http://hsfpp.nefe.org.



Through federal funding and leadership for research, education and extension programs, CSREES focuses on investing in science and solving critical issues impacting people's daily lives and the nation's future. For more information, visit www.csrees.usda.gov.
