The time for action is now! Millions of Americans do not know financial basics. With the state of our economy and indebtedness, this issue is too important to ignore. Providing our kids with financial education gives them the ability to make financial decisions and achieve their personal goals.
That is why Discover created Pathway to Financial Success – to help bring financial education into classrooms across the country in a fun, exciting and interactive way and help children graduate understanding personal finance as well as science, history and math. We’re creating this movement with parents, educators and a community of partners that includes national experts. Together, we can break the cycle and make a positive change. We are underwriting curriculum for students in grades 9-12 and awarding grants to schools. A better financial future for our children needs to start with the type of learning that helps students succeed long after classes end. This issue is too important to ignore.
Our goal is simple: Arm parents and children with the skills they need to succeed, preparing them for a brighter, responsible financial future. The Pathway to Financial Success program is committed to doing just that by:
Being an advocate for Action: Pathway to Financial Success is exposing the financial literacy crisis and advocating for financial education in our kids’ classrooms through PSAs and collaborations with other organizations that are committed to helping Americans become smarter about money and their financial futures.
Providing a curriculum that meets national standards and is developed by The Council of Economic Education (CEE) a national organization dedicated to providing K-12 financial education resources: The CEE is expanding and enhancing its Learning, Earning and Investing curriculum through a grant provided by Discover.
