Money Mission included in Jumptart clearinghouse
MADISON, Wis. (7/12/11)--Money Mission--an online financial literacy video game--has been approved for inclusion in the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy Clearinghouse, announced the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the Wisconsin Credit Union League Monday. Money Mission uses videos to teach personal finance basics--such as recognizing opportunity costs and budgeting--to high school students. Lessons are reinforced through interactive gameplay--teens’ preferred learning style. “Money Mission brings financial literacy training into the new millennium,” said Jill Nordstrom, director of member solutions for the Wisconsin CU League. Money Mission also offers scholarship opportunities to high school seniors. “Money Mission is now included in the nation’s most comprehensive collection of financial education resources for students,” said Terry Costin, CUNA senior vice president of sales and marketing. “This further demonstrates that Money Mission is an effective financial education tool, as only resources that meet the national standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education are selected.” More than 10% of Wisconsin credit unions and several credit unions in Illinois and North Carolina provide Money Mission to their members.
