The organizations hosted training sessions Aug. 5 at Empower FCU in Syracuse, with $1.2 billion in assets, and Aug. 7 at Hudson River Community CU in Corinth, with $187 million in assets, the Credit Union Association of New York (CUANY) reported (The Point Aug. 14).
 
The daylong session prepared educators and credit union professionals to teach the award-winning HSFPP curriculum to youth in their area schools and community groups.
 
Barbara Henza, a trainer with the Cornell Cooperative Extension, reviewed the curriculum modules, which included planning, borrowing, earning capability, investing, financial services and insurance.
 
Henza also outlined the program resources available to educators, including student guides, teacher lesson plans and a growing collection of online resources and learning activities.
 
Many New York credit unions provide free curriculum materials and teach the HSFPP in schools across the state. According to CUANY's 2013 MORE Report, the state's credit unions educated more than 119,000 children through youth financial literacy programs last year.
