Abstract: 

The National Foundation for Financial Education (NEFE) provides Financial Workshop Kits on their website: http://www.financialworkshopkits.org/. The workshop kits, which include tools and resources, are intended to help instructors effectively teach money management skills. NEFE provides ten workshops customized by audience, including: human services, low-income, general financial education, health and disability, aging, youth, diverse special populations such as children with disabilities and American Indians, college students and recent graduates, workplace employees and those in special circumstances such as domestic violence, addiction, or gambling.  

What the Experts Say: 

NEFE's Family Money Skills gives a beginning overview of financial literacy for the family and incorporates multiples tools and resources to assist the presenter in giving a customizable presentation. The tool kit makes it easy to plan a financial literacy presentation or a series of workshops, and incorporates activities for parents to utilize with children. Most of the activities are straightforward and only a few will require forethought and planning on the facilitator's part without support from the module. Some of the activities, however, include content that will require further explanation and for that, the facilitator will have to rely on his/her own knowledge and methods to present those topics (e.g. calculating unit cost). In addition, not much guidance to facilitators is provided on how to present/teach the various concepts. Nevertheless, this is a helpful product, especially the activities which could be used as stand-alone worksheets or, more formally, as part of the financial literacy workshop envisioned by NEFE.
