Learn how the Goalsetter Classroom curriculum is making waves in setting up the next generation for success and why credit unions should get involved.
Students who participated in the Goalsetter Classroom curriculum have demonstrated the following:

- Increase in their financial aptitude by 40%
Goalsetter partners with credit unions to bring Goalsetter Classroom to their communities and school systems. Credit unions can ensure financial well-being for all by sponsoring kids with seed savings accounts and financial literacy.
Founded by Tanya Van Court in 2016, Goalsetter is an education-first family finance and technology platform offering credit unions a 360° solution for reaching their next generation of members. A former Nickelodeon and Discovery Education executive, Tanya had a long career trajectory in creating digital products, but it wasn't until her 8-year-old daughter asked for an investment account and a bike for her ninth birthday that she realized her true calling. In that moment, she knew if she could get every kid in America to become a saver and investor instead of a consumer, she could change the world. And so, Goalsetter was born.
