Hifi logo The High School Financial Literacy (HiFi) Program, which trains teachers, financial professionals, and representatives of community-based organizations to teach financial literacy to teens, will hold free classes for interested instructors at two locations in May and June.

The first class will be held Monday, May 11, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and the other class will be held Tuesday, June 16, at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester.

The financial challenges facing today’s students are many and complex. The HiFi Program helps provide them with the tools to make informed financial decisions that will positively affect their futures. Sponsored by the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation, HiFi is a comprehensive effort to bring financial literacy education into the classroom through those who have gone through the HiFi training process.

The HiFi program has been successful with more than 850 educators trained, representing over 330 high schools and community-based organizations. In addition, more than 100 financial representatives have been trained and are available to lend their expertise in the classroom.

Teachers and others interested in HiFi training can visit the HiFi website for more information or to register online.
