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 want to thank the MoneySKILL creators for making it available for schools to use. I have incorporated these modules into my financial literacy class and they are great to use when students have finished their assignments and have time to work on a module. Working on a 13-week trimester, students are required to complete 17 modules the first 6 weeks and 17 the second 6 weeks. Also, when working on the modules at home, their parents are interested in what they are doing and this sparks dialogue with them about financial matters." (March 2009) Ken Krause, Business/Marketing NHS Advisor, Fitzgerald High School, Warren, MI
"I want to say how much I appreciate MoneySKILL. I was given a finance course to teach out of the blue, and with the help of MoneySKILL I feel that I have given the students a good, solid learning experience." (2008) Susan Barocas, Northampton High School, Northampton, MA
