Know any parents or grandparents that worry about their kids and money?
Click to play.
If so, they’re in the mainstream.
According to a national survey conducted by the Consumer Federation of America and FoolProof, little more than half of the parents in America think their kids will leave home with the financial skills necessary for them to Safely Navigate the Free Enterprise System.

Some kids ruin their credit by the time they are sixteen.
Most young people learn about finances from their peers, not a good place to learn.
But, according to the CFA/FoolProof Survey, most young people want to learn about money from an adult in their family.
FoolProof for Parents and Grandparents allows the parent or grandparent to control their high school kids education about the realities of the free enterprise system. The program gives adults an engaging, interactive group of modules to use at home.
The program is turnkey. The adult signs up the young person, and FoolProof does the rest.
Both adults and kids start at your credit union's website.
The modules are based on our High School modules, but feature special videos for this program, and have been rewritten to replace the teacher with the parent or grandparent.
