56th Annual Financial Literacy & Economic Education Conference with CEE

 

56th Annual Financial Literacy & Economic Education Conference with CEE

For nearly 70 years, The Council for Economic Education (CEE) has focused on the economic and financial education of students from kindergarten through high school. CEE delivers the fourth “R” – a real-world understanding of how to build fruitful lives – to America’s young people.

Their goal is to reach and teach every child to create a more informed citizenry capable of making better decisions as savers, investors, borrowers, voters, and participants in the global economy. They do this by educating the educators: providing the curriculum tools, the pedagogical support, and the community of peers that instruct, inspire, and guide. All resources and programs are developed by educators, and delivered by their national network of affiliates—over 240 across the country. Each year, they train approximately 55,000 teachers in person, and those teachers, in turn, reach approximately 5 million students throughout the country. EconEdLink – their free, online educator gateway for economic and personal finance lessons and resources – attracts more than 1 million unique visitors each year.

They are currently seeking volunteers for their 56th Annual Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference at the New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bride on Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7. This event is a nationwide meeting of K–12 educators, local CEE affiliates from across the country, Federal Reserve partners, and other educators in this field.
