InCharge is pleased to support America’s teachers with free financial literacy education and classroom resources.
Teach Money is a program designed for teachers, with a mission as simple as its name: Teach Money.

Each workshop attendee receives a course pack with financial literacy education resources that can be used in the classroom as well as workbook pages teachers can use for themselves to set financial goals, budget and improve their understanding of credit, debt, and money management.
