IU Credit Union is proud to implement the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program in area schools to help promote sound financial planning and money management skills to high school students.

Georgeanna Sims, AVP, Branch Administrator at IUCU volunteered her time throughout the spring semester at Edgewood High School in Ellettsville. She visited Jeff Carmichael’s class eight times during the semester to instruct students on core competencies like creating a financial plan, budgeting, saving, investing, and career planning.

Since 1984, the National Endowment for Financial Education has been addressing youth financial literacy with the nationally known NEFE High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP). The program consists of a seven unit student manual, instructor’s guide, and a dynamic suite of Web pages that offer a large, continually growing collection of resources, articles, and financial tools for teachers, students, and parents.
