EverFi Launches Roadshow To Promote Financial Literacy Month





WASHINGTON, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  EverFi, Inc., the education technology company that teaches, assesses, and certifies students in critical skills, today announced the launch of its first-ever Financial Literacy Month Roadshow. EverFi will host more than 50 financial literacy events in 20 states as part of the Roadshow, including a signature event today at Brackenridge High School in San Antonio, Texas, with special guest Mayor Julian Castro.  Over 400 students will be recognized at the event for having completed EverFi's financial literacy platform.

In a recent survey of U.S. high school students, commissioned by EverFi to gauge their knowledge and feelings toward money management, 83 percent of students said that personal finance should be mandatory in schools. However, only four states require at least a semester-long course devoted to the topic. Working closely with sponsors, EverFi is embarking on this Roadshow to provide students the financial education they are asking for.

"When we started EverFi in 2008, we drove an RV across the country to talk with students, teachers and administrators about the pressure financial issues put on them," said Tom Davidson, Chief Executive Officer of EverFi. "Today we are still on that journey in small towns and large cities across the nation working to ensure that all students can become financially literate using the technology they love."

Roadshow events will be hosted at K-12 schools across the nation and will include launch receptions for schools new to the program and certification ceremonies to recognize students who have completed the EverFi digital learning platform.  In addition to Mayor Castro of San Antonio, the Roadshow will include state and local government officials including Rhode Island State Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel

EverFi partners with more than 500 financial institutions, corporations and non-profit organizations to bring its innovative learning platforms to K-12 schools at no cost. Partners participating in the Roadshow include BMO Harris Bank, the Bruce Rauner Family Foundation, Capital One, Genworth, Mutual of Omaha Bank, Regions Bank, Sandy Spring Bank, PNC Bank, and US Bank.

Among the cities included in the Roadshow are Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Richmond, San Antonio, San Diego, St. Louis and Washington, DC. Stay connected to Financial Literacy Roadshow updates at the  EverFi Blog.
