This episode of “Murmurings” expands upon our last one, talking about one of our favorite financial education programs, Biz Kid$.
As a reminder, Biz Kid$ is a financial literacy initiative launched nationally in 2008 that teaches kids about money and business. It is the first national public television series promoting financial education for elementary through high school students and was created by the same team that produced “Bill Nye the Science Guy”. The initiative includes an award-winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, and much more.
On this podcast, we talk with Sarah Bilyeu and Nathan Schmidt from San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU) about all the specific ways that they leverage Biz Kid$, including their work with local schools, Biz Kid$ Bashes, fundraising via the Holiday Bowl, and much more.
“We’ve heard a lot of great feedback from those who have received the Biz Kid$ program. They absolutely love it. They tell us that it’s the financial literacy solution they’ve been looking for in their classroom.” – Sarah Bilyeu
