NAFCU Intro's Financial Education In Spanish
NAFCU has released a Spanish version of its financial education curriculum for credit unions. This initiative was adapted from the FDIC program, Money Smart, and was produced in cooperation with Syracuse Cooperative FCU, which has a Spanish language services team. The Syracuse Cooperative team devoted over 200 hours and considerable staff resources to complete the project, NAFCU reported. The Spanish language curriculum, like the English version, is comprised of 10 chapters, each containing an instructor guide, take-home guide and slide presentation. Each of the 10 chapters that make up the curriculum was edited by NAFCU to better reflect the services and terminology used by credit unions. Credit unions are encouraged to adjust the program depending on their credit union's goals or the needs of their membership. For info: www.nafcunet.org.
