Minimum Requirements for Participation in MoneySKILL
AFSAEF's mission is to help consumers realize the benefits of responsible money management, understand the credit process, and seek help if credit problems occur.
MoneySKILL IS Free!
MoneySKILL is a FREE online reality based personal finance course for young adults developed by the AFSA Education Foundation. This interactive curriculum is aimed at the millions of high school and college students who graduate each year without a basic understanding of money management fundamentals. The course is designed to be used as all or part of a grade for courses in economics, math, social studies or where personal finance are taught. Students experience the interactive curriculum as both written text and audio narration. In addition, frequent quizzes test their grasp of each and every concept. The 36-module curriculum, with pre- and post -tests, covers the content areas of income, expenses, assets, liabilities and risk management. A life simulation module asks students to project their own financial life expectancies in areas such as employment, housing, transportation, education, marriage, family and retirement. The life simulation allows students to incorporate the MoneySKILL personal finance concepts into their everyday lives, thus providing them with knowledge and skills that will last a lifetime.
A junior high/middle school version was released in 2011 consisting of 12 modules covering concepts on income, expenses, saving and credit.

"We have been incredibly pleased with the MoneySKILL website and our students have commented on their ability to learn an important skill for their upcoming lives. We realized a while ago that the overall financial literacy of teenagers is borderline abysmal. Thus, the ability to use the MoneySKILL program, which is easy to use, comprehensive and an important part of our curriculum is so vital."Eric Smith & Connie Fuentes, Glendora High School, Glendora, CA
"MoneySKILL has been a great tool for my
Principles of Economics students at Wake Tech
Community College, but with MoneySKILL I
was lucky to find a program that was easy to
setup and administer." Mark Monsky, Wake Tech
Community College, North Carolina
"Using MoneySKILL has enabled me to
accomplish my lofty goals and the standards I
need to cover in my Finance course. I can cover
many topics in a week and if I want, I can then
add supplemental activities. MoneySKILL has
been a lifesaver for me for three years and my
students have learned tremendously." Dawn Johnston, Northwestern High School,
"I use MoneySKILL modules to not only fill
in the gaps, but also reinforce concepts that
are taught in a Personal Finance class. It's
always great when a topic comes up in class
and the students inform me that this topic was
covered in one of the MoneySKILL modules that
they had worked on." Ken Krause, Business/
Marketing Teacher, Fitzgerald High School,
