NYIB Classroom Reporting Deadline Announced

Financial educators and marketers have until Friday, July 8, to report classroom work for official recognition from the National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB).

NYIB collects annual figures through user profiles on its website to recognize outstanding performance and support credit union advocacy.

While the NYIB website accepts continual data entry, the network’s official reporting year is July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011.

Currently, credit unions for the first time in a decade fall short of average annual growth in financial education classroom presentation statistics

NYIB will recognize top presenters and states in terms of presentations made and students reached at its 2011 Annual Conference July 25-28 in Pittsburgh.

Reported data currently has credit unions reaching more than 300,000 students for the fourth consecutive year. Youth advocates reported reaching 413,460 students in 13,577 classrooms presentations during the 2009-10 reporting year.

“We have long maintained that the numbers are in fact higher than our annual totals based on awareness of NYIB’s data collection,” NYIB Chairman Rebecca Isaacs noted. “So we challenge all those who work in classrooms for credit unions–or those who know others who do–to close this reporting year with a flourish and get the recognition they deserve.”

A feature on the NYIB’s website called “MyNYIB” allows users to set up profiles, retrieve data, and enter schools or organizations as recurring options for streamlined presentation entry. Presentation types include basic concepts, plus the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program and the PBS Biz Kid$ companion curriculum.

Data collected by NYIB is valuable to credit unions, associations, regulators, and legislators. NYIB offered annual statistics at CUNA’s 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference and it encourages regular reporting throughout the year to provide relatively accurate search results for site visitors.
