Welcome to the latest edition of the NGPF Newsletter (#32 for those of you scoring at home).
We are having a great time this week hosting our June Summer Institute at our offices in Palo Alto. Knowing that many of our readers use the summer months to tinker with their curriculum, we wanted to share with you resources that our NGPF Fellows selected during a one-hour Scavenger Hunt they completed yesterday ("Top Resources from Summer Institute" below).
As always, if you have any ideas on how we can serve you better, please drop us an email!
Enjoy your summer!

TOP RESOURCES FROM NGPF SUMMER INSTITUTE
On Sunday, 12 outstanding educators landed in California for NGPF's June Summer Institute. On Monday, we set them loose for an hour on our website to find resources for their upcoming school year. We wanted to share with you what they found.
Here's a sample of their top resources and the reasons they chose them (here's the complete list):
"Students often don't know the purpose of a W4 or how their allowances can impact the taxes they may have to pay. This activity breaks down how different numbers of allowances can affect refund/payment amounts."
THE NGPF Blog provides you with TWO posts daily to keep you up-to-date on developments in the fast changing world of personal finance and to give you ideas on incorporating current events into your lessons. Sign up hereto receive these daily updates (sign-up box is in right hand margin).
Looking for some summer reading, I mean webinars, to keep you active and learning this summer? We have eight scheduled for this summer so I'm sure that you can find one that interests you on our webinar page.
Here's what we have been up to on the professional development front since our last newsletter:
We delivered 32 hours of PD hours to educators with our Tech Tools Webinar, one of our most popular webinars to date.
Thank you to the 50 educators who attended our workshops at the Tennessee Jump$tart Conference in Gatlinburg earlier this month. We received lots of great feedback as you navigated the NGPF Scavenger Hunt and found resources for your next school year.
Thanks to NGPF Fellows Amanda Volz and Jill Thompson for recently leading NGPF workshops at the Iowa Personal Financial Literacy Conference and WACTE Conferences, respectively.
