Share Financial Education Resources with Your Local Schools

With deep roots in the Northwest, Biz Kid$ is a national financial literacy initiative that teaches youth about money and business.  Biz Kid$ engages young people and helps them develop life skills in the areas of financial literacy and entrepreneurship. During the 2019-2020 school year, the Northwest Credit Union Foundation hosted a Biz Kid$ Business Plan Competition for middle school students across Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. 

The Biz Kid$ Program provides the opportunity for credit unions to partner with local  schools to provide economic and entrepreneurship education to youth, helping them build a solid financial future. Through this program, students will have the opportunity to showcase their creative business ideas while practicing financial education, entrepreneurial, public speaking, and teamwork skills.  The creation of a business plan will help students put what they have learned in the classroom into action and provide hands-on, outcomes-based financial education to the students. 

This program will provide teachers with flexible lesson plans and curriculum options including educational videos, sample lesson plans, and a credit union partner who will join their classroom to provide financial and real-world advice for students throughout the semester. NWCUF is working to create a more flexible and adaptive program for the 2020-2021 school year. 

The Northwest Credit Union Foundation’s Biz Kid$ Program is made possible, in part, by support from the National Credit Union Foundation.
