Paul Merriman interviews Tim Ranzetta, President of Next Generation Personal Finance (, about his organization’s commitment to financial education for teachers and students, which is extraordinary. NGPF was created on the belief that financial literacy is the key to creating stable futures for the next generation. It promotes financial education in our public schools, and provides free engaging curriculum and professional development for any educator who is interested in the program, with an abundance of free resources for all.

Learn about the results NGPF is tracking and the reasons not every student in the U.S. is being given access to this valuable, life-changing education. Discover the actions you can take to improve the financial future of your children, grandchildren and other young people (and educators) in your life and community.

NGPF produced a video called “The Most Important Class You Never Had,” (watch on YouTube), which explains the critical impact of financial literacy on our lives — and how improving an understanding of finance during youth can change behavior into adulthood. NGPF focuses on helping students in grades 6-12.

This interview is the final in the 2021 series of Financial Literacy Month events, “Take Control of Your Financial Future,” sponsored by The Merriman Financial Education Foundation, Bainbridge Community Foundation and Library U, a resource of the Bainbridge Public Library.
