·        How the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP) can help you bring a strong core curriculum to your high school and empower your students.

·        Learn how BizKid$ can help engage your students at our social networking hour!

Presenters include:

·        Jamie Hammond, Producer, Biz Kids – Where kids teach kids about money and business, an educational television show that teaches financial education and entrepreneurship to a preteen audience.
