When it comes to educating students and the community about Personal Financial Literacy, NCDPI needs "all hands on deck." We are fortunate to have national organizations, state institutions and agencies, and local organizations to collaborate and partner with us as we reach out across the state promoting the importance of being financially literate.
Collaborative partners support our program by providing instruction to our teachers, students and parents, providing materials for classroom use, providing speaker's on personal financial literacy topics and by collaborating with the agency in the development of instructional materials and presentations.
Our collaborative partnerships reach across all segments of our state and are dedicated to our educational goals of
- Advancing teacher knowledge and understanding of personal finances
- Increasing the number of high school students who are financially literate
- Enhancing public awareness and parent knowledge of personal finances
