CARE is a resource for Opal educators and teachers across the country to help provide financial education in the classroom. Our presenters bring real-world experience in financial services, personal-finance education, and other financial matters to your classroom, with a focus on helping students better understand the ins and outs of making smarter credit decisions.
Our 45-minute presentations have been developed by former educators and financial education professionals, and conform to the National Standards for K-12 Personal Finance Education of the National Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy.
CARE’s educational presentations provide the perfect complement for teachers who are covering personal-finance topics as part of a course or personal-finance unit. The materials can also be used as stand-alone presentations for any educator interested in raising youth and young adult awareness of sound personal financial management skills in Opal.
Scheduling a presentation in Opal is easy. Request a presentation below, and we will connect you with your local volunteer leader to set up a presentation.

“ Thank you for bringing the CARE program to the Mercy High School senior class. This information is critical to helping students make good choices so they can have a successful future. Your message and delivery really hit home with the students. In fact, one student called and canceled two of her credit cards within the hour following your presentation! ”
