Available Now — Financial Educator Virtual Academy
To help Maine educators better prepare students with financial knowledge, the Finance Authority
of Maine (FAME) announced today that the Center for Financial Literacy at Champlain College,
in partnership with the Maine Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy and its
sponsors, FAME, the Office of the Maine State Treasurer, and Next Gen Personal Finance
(NGPF), is offering free online and on-demand training for Maine teachers.
The Financial Educator Virtual Academy will train Maine educators on how to successfully
teach personal finance in their classrooms and communities. Educators will receive contact hours
for each course module attended, and the first 100 Maine classroom teachers to complete all
seven hours of training will receive a $50 Amazon gift card. The online course offering will be
available starting October 12, 2022 and will close on December 16, 2022.
