Bluefield College


Financial Literacy Clearinghouse


This site is the result of a grant from S.I.F.E. International. SIFE, in partnership with HSBC's CIBM division and the HSBC Education Trust, began a financial literacy outreach program worldwide in January 2005. This site has been developed by the members of the Bluefield College S.I.F.E. Team. This site contains links to articles, lesson plans and websites on teaching financial literacy. The Bluefield College S.I.F.E. Team hopes to use this clearinghouse as a resource in educating area youth and adults in financial literacy and hopes that individuals and educators locally and nationally will utilize this website to research articles, find lesson plans for their classrooms and locate websites on financial literacy striving to education youth and adults.
