ColoradoWyoming CUs FoolProof launch national fin ed program
ARVADA, Colo. (4/9/08)--Colorado and Wyoming credit unions have formed a national financial education and literacy partnership with FoolProof Financial Education Systems to deliver a financial education program to credit unions nationwide. “With so many Americans ensnared in the subprime market, there has never been a more important time for credit unions to strengthen their financial literacy platform,” said John Dill, president, Credit Union Strategic Partners (CUSP), which will distribute FoolProof. FoolProof aims to teach people of all ages about money. It has two elements: interactive modules for young people including videos, articles, audio, games, animations and music; and year-round adult and youth consumer websites with videos and podcasts. FoolProof websites feature breaking news and monthly feature segments. Credit unions can use five services:
* FoolProof’s CUHQ, a year-round, interactive website for youth; * FoolProof for High Schools, a financial literacy curriculum for high schools; * FoolProof for Parents and Grandparents, a program that involves parents and grandparents in children’s education; * FoolProof Solo, which targets college-age students and provides credit unions with college students, student groups and other college-aged constituencies; and * FoolProof Information Edge, an adult financial education website.
