About the Session

202: AFS/EE Section Resource Exchange Roundtables - (Conference Attendance Credit: #1 hr)

Presenter: Jennifer Reinke

The average undergraduate student will graduate with nearly $30,000 in debt; $30,000 also represents the median entry salary for a Human Development and Family Studies graduate beginning a career in the human services professions. This presentation will include a classroom activity that can be used in online or face-to-face undergrade HDFS professional development-type courses to promote students' critical thinking about the current status and potential future of their personal finances. Participants will be provided with a handout that includes the full activity, along with a grading rubric.

-- Explain how the Financial Planning for HDFS Professionals activity can be adapted for audience member's own classrooms.
-- Explain how elements of the Financial Planning for HDFS Professionals acitvity can be implemented in non-professional-development classes (e.g., Introduction to HDFS courses).
