Mission Statement

The mission of the Florida Council on Economic Education is to prepare Florida's young people for personal and financial success through educational programs in economics, the free enterprise system and personal financial literacy so that they become productive members of the workforce, responsible consumers and wise investors.

Description

This mission is increasingly relevant in today's economic environment. In an effort to address the needs of a financially undereducated population, the FCEE offers teacher training and standards-based programs and curricula to K-12 Florida teachers to enable them to deliver life-changing economic education to their students. The training provided by the FCEE is done in partnership with Economic Education Centers at State Universities and State Colleges, such as the Gus A. Stavros Center for Free Enterprise and Economic Education at the University of South Florida.

Training workshops held at centers throughout the state, emphasize active learning techniques to introduce economics and financial literacy in a number of subjects including geography, mathematics, history and civics. In addition to training, the FCEE offers a variety of classroom resources to K-12 teachers, all of which are free of charge. During the 2009-2010 school year, the FCEE distributed over 36,000 of these resources to 922 teachers, reaching nearly 96,000 students. Founded in 1975, The Florida Council on Economic Education is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is funded by leading corporations and individuals throughout the state. The Florida Council is affiliated with the Council for Economic Education, as part of a national network of state Councils and Economic Education Centers.
