Financial Literacy Webinars for Students: March “Money Monday” Series

March 7, 2011

Nelnet Partner Solutions  is continuing  our series of free, online webinars designed to increase the financial literacy of students. Our driving force behind this series has been requests from schools, across that country, to we partner with them to deliver content that is helpful and useful to students.  Our first month of webinars went very well and the attendence exceeded our expectations.  We also  learned how we could tailor these a bit more going forward.

Every Monday at 2pm and 4:30pm (eastern) students can register to attend a free webinar the will highlight various aspects of personal financial wellness.  Registration is available via www.nelnet.com

In March, we will offer one more month of the general overview of personal finance.

PERSONAL FINANCE 101

This session is a broad look at personal finance and will touch on many areas including knowing where your money goes, wants vs. needs, minimizing debt, investing for the future and an overview of student loan repayment.  This session will last approximately 30 minutes.

The suggestions that schools have offered on additional topics that we can research and offer in the future have really helped us create a long-term curriculum. We have also been asked if we could provide printed materials and/or pdfs that schools could offer to students on best financial practices.    You will start to see these free materials available for printing this month.  Please keep letting us know what we can develop.

In April, we will start on a series of webinars that are much more specific and detailed.  The topic wil be “Budgeting”.

You should have recieved an email from your Nelnet Regional Director with information and an email that you can either forward to students interested in attending or that you can print and post.  If you did not get the info, please contact me at james.harris@nelnet.net and I will make sure you get this and  future information.

Have a great week!

Jim
