Dave Ramsey's Foundations in Personal Finance
In 2010, the Bank and The Lampo Group, company of New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio talk show host Dave Ramsey, formed an alliance in which Fifth Third would sponsor his personal finance curriculum in high schools throughout the Bank's footprint.
The Bank's sponsorship has enabled us to reach more than 400,000 students who are able to gain the valuable lessons from Dave's course at no charge to the school or to the students themselves.
Dave Ramsey's Foundations in Personal Finance allows high school educators to teach their students about the importance of their financial future. Through a DVD lecture course, accompanying workbook, and online content, students are taught the value of saving, spending and giving to guide them down the path of financial peace. Educators can enjoy the easy to use, turn-key resource that provides them with lesson plans, tests, activities, and other supplemental material. They don't have to worry about lesson planning--Dave has done all of that for them!
Each chapter is broken up into 15 minute sections on the DVD to facilitate easier discussions, and most of the chapters last around 1 hour total. Foundations in Personal Finance can be used as a primary or supplemental resource to fulfill requirements in mathematics, economics, family consumer science, business mathematics and personal finance.
