Starting this fall hundreds of local Santa Clarita students will have access to a new and potentially life changing class that aims to teach the foundations of personal finance.
Two local businesses, Neylan Group International and Heter Family Woodworking have sponsored the curriculum and created course access to the next generation of Santa Clarita Valley students.
On Wednesday, May 25, representatives from multiple public high schools and Legacy Christian Academy gathered at Newhall Refinery to receive the sponsored curriculum and hear inspiring student success stories from the two schools that piloted the course last year, Legacy Christian Academy and Canyon High School. The schools experienced overwhelming success with the program which opened the door for expansion.
As a part of that expansion, Canyon, Bowman, Hart and Saugus High requested and received the sponsored curriculum. Over the last 4 years, Neylan Group Intl and Heter Family Woodworking have partnered, bringing various personal finance classes to the Santa Clarita community.
The engaging curriculum covers foundational topics like college loans, careers, giving, a history of personal finance, global economies and in detail, teaches students how to prepare monthly budgets.
“We are so proud to be a part of changing students’ lives with this curriculum,” said Sam Neylan, President of Neylan Group International. “Neylan Group is passionate about financial education and facilitating Santa Clarita’s children to start on the best path possible, creating a wiser and better prepared next generation. As an adult, it’s changed my life and I wish I’d had this when I was younger.”
Brendie Heter, owner of Heter Family Woodworking said, “After taking the course, we see students understand more than most adults about insurance, saving and retirement. Our entire community will benefit from local students learning how to avoid major financial pitfalls.”
There are additional grant opportunities available for homeschool groups and charter schools. For more information about the curriculum or receiving the curriculum for your school, contact Brendie Heter at (661) 645-3426.
