NEFE – National Endowment For Financial Education
The teaching of money management to young adults has never been more important. To maintain a healthy financial well-being, young adults need to have the knowledge and self-confidence to manage their money. When sound money habits are taught, learned and reinforced, they become automatic and help to develop teens into financial mature adults. NEFE is a program that UFirst Federal Credit Union is proud to have introduced into several classrooms in the area.
