Financial Education Resources for Students of All Ages

Elementary School

FAME’s Cash and Max characters introduce elementary students to three key concepts: career exploration, education after high school and money management.

Middle School, High School, College & Beyond

Claim Your Future® is a classroom game that was created for middle school students to encourage them to explore education after high school, future careers and money management. By playing the game, students will understand the strong connection between the choices they make today and their opportunities in the future. They will also learn that higher education generally leads to more career options and higher paying jobs.

  • Contact FAME to schedule a Claim Your Future in-person session at your school conducted by FAME’s College Access and Financial Education Team.
