At Nusenda Credit Union, we believe that financial capability is about having the skills, knowledge, confidence, and opportunity to effectively manage money and resources.
To work, financial capability education must meet people and families where they are, and it should be culturally, age, and environmentally appropriate. Such education can make a positive impact, allowing individuals to stay in their homes, neighborhoods, and schools. It also gives them more flexibility to search for and accept a better job, or start a business.
In addition to developing, practicing, and sharing our own middle- and high-school financial capabilities curriculum, we’ve invested in a variety of programs and organizations working to bring financial capabilities education across generations — from early childhood into adult programs, including no-cost presentations from Nusenda Ambassadors and our Financial Education Innovator recognition program.
