HSFPP students assisted by CUs top half million
MADISON, Wis. (12/14/07)--More than half a million students have participated in credit union-assisted High School Financial Planning Programs (HSFPP), as of Sept. 30, reports the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Roughly 29,668 students received workbooks for financial education in 231 schools working with credit unions during the first half of the current school year, said Phil Heckman, CUNA's director of youth programs. That brings the total number of students benefiting from credit unions' financial education efforts in the HSFPP to 517,830 since the 2000-2001 academic year--the first year CUNA began tracking credit unions' participation. Overall, the HSFPP has educated more than four million students since 2000-2001. Currently it is educating 387,969 students in 6,305 schools. HSFPP is offered through the National Endowment for Financial Education. Credit unions work with Cooperative Extension in about 10% of the credit union-assisted programs.
