Helping Support Our Schools
To further support teachers and families who are seeking financial literacy tools, Economic Literacy Colorado has compiled a wide variety of resources on their website. Educators who are teaching remotely will find resources that include webinars, lessons, articles, and recommendations for online engagement systems and presentation tools.
For kindergarten to 12th grade students and their parents, Economic Literacy Colorado offers age-appropriate financial literacy program resources to support at-home learning about personal financial responsibility.
About Economic Literacy Colorado
Economic Literacy Colorado is the only Colorado nonprofit dedicated to economic and personal financial professional development for kindergarten-12th grade teachers. Its goal is for every Colorado student to be financially and economically capable of making informed decisions to set them up for success. Because Colorado students are not required to learn these fundamental life-skills, Economic Literacy Colorado works diligently to educate, engage and incentivize educators to make financial education a priority in their school or district, leveling the playing field for all Colorado students.
