Financial literacy is a topic a great importance to those of us who work at Visa. We take great pride in the resources that we have created for educators, parents and students to address important financial questions and topics as people reach various milestones in their lives through our “Practical Money Skills for Life” program. Whether it is creating lesson plans for elementary school teachers or developing “Financial Football” to use sports to promote financial literacy, we are constantly thinking about ways to innovate around the topic.
And while Visa has strong voice to contribute to the conversation, we partner closely with educators on our advisory council to continually update our curriculum and offerings to make sure that the message we are helping to communicate resonates with students.
