2012 California Financial Literacy Conference For Educators

Saturday, April 14, 2012

South San Francisco

The 2012 California Financial Literacy Conference For Educators will gather together grade 4-12 educators, California community colleges, nonprofits, businesses, community groups, financial professionals, government agencies and others to empower California’s  educators and community colleges to fight financial illiteracy by educating a new generation of Californians to manage their finances better than the generations that have gone before.

The conference will deliver the tools educators need to integrate personal finance education into their classrooms. Here’s some educators’ feedback on the last conference in LA on what they liked best:

  • “Tools and valuable resources we can use and share to take back and use in our community.”
  • “The overall concept of bringing financial literacy into the classroom and sharing best practices of how teachers can implement financial literacy in their classrooms.”
  • “It was fantastic to discover how many resources are available at no cost”
  • “Everything was very relevant and timely very well done. Excellent topics and powerful speakers! I hope the word spreads and you double the size each year”

Most programs featured at the conference will result in no fiscal expenses for educators or school districts. Plus, educators will learn the skills to deliver personal finance education themselves or make connections with trained volunteers who can bring personal finance education to their classrooms.

Objectives:
  • Provide educators with specific resources to deliver personal finance education in their classrooms and at school sites, including free curriculum guides, workbooks, toolkits and more.
  • Connect and network educators with not-for-profits, community groups and others who can provide volunteer support for the delivery of personal finance education in the classroom.
  • Share best practices of educators who have implemented personal financial education programs.
  • Highlight and encourage creative and exemplary teaching techniques and strategies designed to reach diverse audiences.
  • Demonstrate standards-based approaches to personal finance education.
  • Identify a clear and compelling vision of how financial literacy efforts can be incorporated into the K-12 education without burdening economically strained school districts.
  • Increase public awareness and media attention to the critical role 4-12 educators and community colleges can play in creating a financially literate California.
Major Topics:
  • Financial literacy
  • Personal finance education
