MCUA co-hosts personal finance instructors training

Forty financial educators attended the session in Kansas City Feb. 15. Five Missouri credit union employees from St. Louis Community CU; United CU in Mexico, Mo.; and United Consumers CU in Independence participated. "This was our first opportunity to really see the HSFPP materials and understand how well they cover the curriculum," said Heather DeMint, marketing manager at United CU. HSFPP's curriculum teaches young people the fundamentals of money management. Katie Tate, MCUA training specialist who was one of the presenters, said the session gave credit union staff attending "an opportunity to make connections with Missouri teachers so they can get into more classrooms to help spread the credit union difference." Other co-hosts were Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Kansas City School District Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, University of Missouri Cooperative Extension and University of Missouri's Kansas City Center for Economic Education. Additional HSFPP training sessions will be July 17 in St. Louis and Dec. 30 in Columbia.
