VACAVILLE, Calif. — Travis Credit Union is filling the financial education needs of Napa and Solano County High School students with a new program.

The curriculum is six short units taught in 10-hours that are strictly non-commercial in content. Written by teachers for teachers through the National Endowment for Financial Education the program teaches goal setting, budgeting, saving and the wise use of credit using unique games, simulations, case studies, and interactive exercises to provide hands-on experience for students.

There are three main purposes of the program; teach the financial planning process, provide students with the opportunity to apply the process through simulation exercises, and enable teens to take control of their finances now and in their adult life.
