Special funding for our programs has been made available for Centre, Clinton, Montour, Northumberland, Upper Dauphin, Union, and Snyder County Schools and more thanks to the following sponsors:
Our sponsored Personal Finance Lab includes a Personal Budgeting Game, LMS Curriculum plus Brighter Financial Futures' Dream-Learn-Pitch. The Personal Budgeting Challenge offers players in grades 3-12 the opportunity to manage a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio by investing in stocks chosen from the USA markets: American, New York and NASDAQ exchanges. The competition teaches students about investing and encourages financial literacy through hands-on activities in the classroom. For more information on our partnership with these sponsors, click here for the press release.
