Founded in 2014, Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF) is the leader in the K-12 personal finance space with more than 40,000 middle and high school teachers who rely on NGPF’s engaging, hands-on personal finance curriculum and professional development sessions.

We’re on a mission to ensure that all students cross their high school graduation stage having taken a personal finance class by 2030 [Mission 2030].

To achieve this goal, we create free middle school and high school curriculum, offer free teacher professional development workshops, and lead advocacy efforts to increase student access to personal finance education. When asked to describe NGPF curriculum, teachers often answer “current”, “fun” and “organized.” The curriculum team members are integral to the success of the organization!

We are looking for a passionate and energetic professional to expand our personal finance curriculum and resources to meet the needs of economics teachers.

Next Gen Personal Finance is based out of Palo Alto, California. This role can be based anywhere in the United States.
