NWGACU in the classroom

Did you know that the graduating class of 2008 scored a 48.3% on a national test of personal finance basics¹? Positive money skills are not always taught in the home, and many educators do not have enough wiggle room in their academic curriculum to teach it themselves.

Enter learn.grow., a financial literacy program created and taught by Northwest Georgia Credit Union. This program is a series of classroom lessons on various topics that form the foundation for a strong financial future and sharpen students’ knowledge about managing money.


Each lesson is:

  • Free! We consider this our responsibility to our community.
  • Taught by a trained representative from Northwest Georgia Credit Union
  • Connected to specific Georgia Performance Standards
  • Available for students K-12
  • Adaptable for 30-90 minute presentations
  • Interactive and engaging
  • Totally customizable
  • Complete with graphic organizers
  • Includes a free gift for each student
