NCAN has teamed up with Inceptia, a private, not-for-profit organization, to teach students personal finance basics in an engaging environment through its online financial education program, Financial Avenue. Financial Avenue is designed to help students learn, and put into practice, the crucial principles of personal finance. Both organizations believe this resource is valuable for students, schools, parents, and the community at large, and therefore, have made available free online financial education via Financial Avenue to students through the NCAN membership network.
