Financial Literacy Tool

The National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth (NAEHCY) is pleased to announce our partnership with Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program. This partnership is aimed at expanding financial literacy education for youth experiencing homelessness through Inceptia's online program, "Financial Avenue." Inceptia is generously providing this resource for free to NAEHCY members, students participating in our Statewide Higher Education Networks, our Local Youth Task Forces, NAEHCY Scholars, and any homeless youth that you serve through your programs. 

Financial Avenue offers engaging, online courses and resources to increase knowledge of personal money management fundamentals - from banking basics and responsible credit card use, to creating a budget and paying for college. Financial Avenue's learning objectives align with the financial education core competencies established by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Financial Literacy and Education Commission. Students will receive instruction in personal financial literacy that will benefit them while in school, as well as with post high school plans, whether they enter the work force, attend college, or join the military. 

To use Financial Avenue, students will need to create an account at the following website  and obtain an access code from NAEHCY’s Director of Higher Education Initiatives. Students will have the option to register as a "High School Student" or "College Student."  All other users can register as an "Organization Representative" during the registration process. 

To obtain an access code, or find out more information about Financial Avenue, contact Cyekeia Lee, NAEHCY Director of Higher Education Initiatives, at or 855.446.2673 (toll-free).
