New Product Spotlight

EVERFI is embarking on our biggest fall product launch ever, with six new courses joining the K-12 catalog this fall. Check out our two newly released courses.

BINAH: Building Insights to Navigate Antisemitism & Hate targets all high school students, regardless of the makeup of their school community. The aim of this course is to help students understand the history and current reality of antisemitism in the U.S. and how it relates to other expressions of discrimination in order to build empathy, understanding and a more inclusive community.

Money Moves: Modern Banking & Identity Protection helps students develop strategies for managing their finances through online and mobile banking tools. Students will learn to make wise decisions that support their current and future financial well-being, with an emphasis on safe and responsible use of virtual payment apps.
We remain committed to communicating updates as we venture into these changing times and look forward to the day we can meet in person when it is safe. Ohio FCCLA cannot wait to see how you inspire families, careers and communities “Beyond Measure” this year through FCCLA activities..
