Overview

By the time students reach middle school, they have already developed the capacity to understand complex economic concepts, make financial judgments, and assign value to purchases and brands. Yet the majority of today’s students don’t receive the personal finance education they need to navigate the modern financial world. The MassMutual Foundation has partnered with EVERFI to bring critical financial education to middle and high school students across the United States. FutureSmartSM empowers students to effectively manage their finances, make sound decisions, and become stewards of their financial future. Through the story-based narrative and interactive exercises, students learn to make real-life, personal finance decisions and to achieve important goals around saving, education and career planning, and budgeting.
