Money Management Lesson Plan

Refugees arrive in the United States with a range of experiences in money management. Refugee resettlement staff can use this lesson plan to enhance their Cultural Orientation curriculum on the topic.

After this lesson, refugees will better understand the attitudes and skills that will allow them to navigate the complex financial system in the United States.

Activities included in the lesson plan:

  • Financial Systems Discussion
  • Card Sort Activity
  • Financial Milestones Game
  • Future Finances Vision Board

Additional Fact Sheet and Podcast for this lesson plan can be found on the CORE Resettlement Navigator website. Learn more about using these resources by listening to a recorded webinar that features a discussion on how to engage refugees on budgeting, financing, and self-sufficiency.
