Modern Woodmen of America has unveiled MoneyMasters, a free financial literacy program provided exclusively by the fraternal financial services organization. It aims to help teachers develop financial know-how in students from kindergarten through high school.
Money management is a surprisingly uncommon – but important – skill. Blending in-class and digital lessons with engaging, grade-appropriate examples, the MoneyMasters program helps students feel connected to the material. The program integrates with subjects like mathematics, social studies, economics, technology and business, aligns with Jump$tart Standards and can be customized to fit existing curriculums.
Once the program is completed, classrooms may be eligible to receive funds for a community service capstone project, where students can practice the skills they learned while benefiting a local cause.
“Fraternalism is, in a nutshell, the act of connecting with your community,” says Kristen Roberts, Fraternal Operations Manager at Modern Woodmen. “As a fraternal organization, it’s important for Modern Woodmen to include that community-impact element when building the MoneyMasters program.”
Each MoneyMasters program is offered by a local Modern Woodmen financial representative, whose expertise can be a resource for the classroom. Modern Woodmen expects to reach 200,000 students through MoneyMasters each year.
To learn more and order the program for your classroom or youth group, contact your local Modern Woodmen representative.
