Financial Literacy

We are focused on bringing financial literacy education resources and information to all.  Besides offering a financial wellness center to our members, we support financial literacy through several other venues.

Connexus Association has partnered with Junior Achievement offices since 2006 to provide students from kindergarten through high school with knowledge and skills in many areas including financial literacy. Partnership dollars are awarded annually with priority consideration to support Junior Achievement in schools within the Connexus service area.

For the past 4 years, Connexus Association has offered scholarships to local educators to attend the National Institute of Financial and Economic literacy.  During 2016, Connexus Association provided a grant to a local technical college to fund 5 workshops covering various financial literacy educational topics.  We also support GreenPath which provides free access to money management and financial education services.  Starting in 2017, we partnered with Everfi to bring financial literacy courses to a number of local high schools.
