NEFE High School Financial Planning Program
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) are major partners with National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) for the delivery and evaluation of the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program. Each year, more than half a million students complete the 6-unit curriculum. It emphasizes such concepts as managing credit, saving to achieve financial goals, and owning and protecting assets. A nationwide program evaluation in 1997-98—that was replicated in 2004—showed that the program resulted in statistically significant knowledge, behavior, and confidence improvements in students. For example, nearly half of the students started saving or began saving more. The 2007 HSFPP partnership includes land-grant university cooperative extension services. A logic model prepared by partner organizations describes extension's work with HSFPP.
