About Our Financial Literacy Education Committee
America’s Credit Union Museum, with support from the New Hampshire Credit Union League, formed a Financial Literacy Education Committee (FLEC) in 2004 to undertake the task of improving financial education.
The first task the Committee undertook was the development of a financial education curriculum designed to reach middle school students. Working with a group of middle school teachers, a curriculum was developed combining the basic components of career development and financial education. The final result is the CU 4 Reality Program, designed as a two-year curriculum combining classroom work with a culminating hands-on event, the CU 4 Reality Financial Fair.
The CU 4 Reality Program helps credit unions fulfill their mission of promoting thrift by providing leadership opportunities for financial education and combining those opportunities with community service and outreach.
