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.

"I just wanted to write and thank you for this wonderful tool! It has been a terrific supplement to the curriculum I use for my Personal Finance classes. I would recommend this site to every student in the US!" (February 2010) Randy Gettens, Butler Senior High School, Butler, PA
"I really do love this curriculum! It's so practical and yet in-depth with the materials it covers. I love the changes you made to it this year, as I am allowing the students to go back in and re-work their 5 lowest modules. This is helpful in terms of incentive for them, but also in terms of learning the material. This is "real life" stuff and I see some of our brightest students struggling with some of the most basic concepts of personal finance. Your curriculum has been very helpful in this regards." (April 2009) Joel Mishler, NorthWood High School, Elkhart, IN
"I commend the AFSA Education Foundation, the University at Buffalo School of Management and M&T Bank in coming together to create and offer such a worthwhile financial literacy program. My students not only enjoyed the computerized interaction, but they expanded their business knowledge tremendously. This program truly makes a positive difference in classroom instruction and assists in the retention of business knowledge for ALL students." (June 2009) Patrick J. Cook, Jr., Lackawanna High School, NY
