This program will be the largest of its kind ever offered on Long Island. The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) seminar is open to teachers, administrators and other professionals who provide financial literacy education for high school students.

"TFCU and Cablevision are proud to sponsor this important training program, which will provide the latest resources and methods of instruction for teachers, administrators and other professionals involved in financial literacy education. This program will give educators the tools and information they need to prepare a new generation of teenagers for the future, when the students are independent, employed adults. At TFCU we want high school students to have the knowledge that will help them make wise financial decisions. TFCU financial literacy programs, held in communities where our branches are located, have been very well received," said Robert G. Allen, President/CEO of TFCU.
"Cablevision recognizes the importance of financial literacy education for students in all grades, and is pleased to be working with TFCU to offer NEFE training for instructors that will enable them to be effective in educating Long Island students about money management.
