Connexus Association is proud to report that one of our organization's new investments for 2017 is having a real and meaningful impact on the financial well being of young people.

 

Through a partnership with leading education technology company EverFi, Connexus Association is bringing the Financial Scholars Program, an online financial education program, to classrooms in over 5 schools in Central Wisconsin. During the 2017-2018 school year alone, we have reached 72 students with this digital curriculum.

We sponsor the Financial Scholars Program to make it available to schools at no cost, many of which are mandated to teach financial education but lack the funding for a qualified curriculum. 

The Financial Scholars Program is a teacher-led curriculum that includes six to eight hours of classroom instruction combined with an interactive online learning platform for high school students.
