NEFE High School Financial Planning Program.

The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service and participating Land-Grant University Cooperative Extension Services, offers a high school program in financial planning.

The NEFE High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP) was initiated in 1984 as a public service to increase the financial literacy of America's youth. The seven-unit program includes games, simulations, case studies and interactive exercises for students. An instructor's manual is provided for teachers, and each student is given a workbook and personal finance portfolio.

The HSFPP is provided at no cost to public and private school teachers and youth leaders. In addition to high school classrooms, the program is also taught in technical schools, adult education centers, 4-H clubs and juvenile detention centers.

The NEFE also funds financial education projects through its grants program and invites submissions of grant proposals to further public education in personal finance, financial planning and family and consumer economics.
