Financial Literacy Badges

The goal of the Badges Program is to provide a structured option for expanding student’s financial skills and knowledge related to each one of the above financial topics or “financial core competencies”. To earn a badge, you must complete at least three badge-eligible learning activities in a particular badge, at least one of which is highly encouraged to be in person.

Each course is free and open to the public.
