Since 2001, the Financial Educators Network™ has enabled schools and universities to provide high-quality financial education as a part of their continuing and adult education programs. By connecting schools with highly qualified industry practitioners and providing public awareness, the Financial Educators Network™ has helped over 500,000 adults to return to campus.
Adult Education Programs
Financial Educators Network™ helps schools and other educational venues enhance their adult education curriculum by providing well-attended, unique retirement education courses. We make the process easy by working with you to evaluate your organization's needs and then taking care of the details. We help you select a quality course, screen and select instructors, administer and coordinate the program, and provide marketing support to generate good attendance.
Our "life planning" approach to financial and retirement education provides a progressive method of education for adults who are interested in improving their lives. In today's competitive environment, people have many choices when it comes to adult education. As undergraduate enrollments decline nationwide, and facilities remain underutilized, it’s important to offer unique, relevant continuing education courses that will attract large numbers of individuals to your school or organization. One way to meet this challenge is to offer high-quality courses in the areas of life planning and retirement planning.
Financial education, when offered through adult education programs, can have a positive impact on members of the community, and also benefit your curriculum. By providing quality educational courses, you show the community that you’re concerned with their well being and are taking steps to help improve their lives in tangible ways.
In 2017 alone, over 50,000 people attended a Financial Educators Network™ course.
Since these types of courses are not part of our traditional education system, many people have never learned the basics of personal finance. Financial education from a "life planning perspective" helps people develop a greater understanding of how to make informed decisions in their personal and financial lives.
Our Financial Education courses provide these and other benefits to your school or organization:
When you consider how the responsibility for financial planning is shifting from employer and government benefits to the individual, it's no surprise that the lack of financial education during our formative school years is now motivating adults to attend courses on retirement.
Financial education can play a unique part in your adult education curriculum. It not only provides many tangible benefits, but also helps people understand financial issues using a progressive approach to life planning. Attendees leave with an integrated view of their financial picture, which helps them make more informed decisions.
