CU educator to share insight on Biz Kid curriculum
COLUMBIA, S.C. (6/8/09)--Heidi Knudson, business development officer at Altana FCU, Billings, Mont., will share with peers at the National Youth Involvement Board’s (NYIB) 2009 Annual Conference her insight on the curriculum that accompanies the Emmy-nominated “Biz Kid$” financial education television program. Knudson, who has applied lessons from the Biz Kid$ companion curriculum in Montana middle school classrooms, is part of a comprehensive youth-focused agenda set for the Aug. 3-6 conferece, which meets at the Tempe, Ariz., Mission Palms. The session, “Turning Middle Schoolers into Biz Kid$,” will build on momentum for Biz Kid$, which is funded solely by credit unions and is aired on more than 97% of public television stations. Earlier this year, the Washington Credit Union Foundation announced to credit unions the availability of an online and CD-based curriculum educators can use to carry the program principles into the classroom. NYIB followed suit by adding “Biz Kid$” as a subject option within its system for collecting credit union classroom presentation data. Other NYIB Annual Conference topics include:
* Marketing to the Dot Com Generation; * Teens in Control: The Keys to a Fear-Free Student-Run Branch; * Cooperative Social Responsibility: A New Youth Marketing Tool? and * Achieving the Possible in Impossible Times.
