Rural Outreach Program

Economic Literacy Coloradois excited for the opportunity to expand our reach in Colorado to rural communities. We recognize how challenging it is for faraway teachers to attend our open enrollment classes. So, we invite you to request a professional development workshop, either as groups of independent teachers, as school districts, or through regional BOCES. We’ll do our best to come to you with a workshop in economics and/or personal finance. Please contact Marc Johnson, Education Program Director, at 303-752-2323 or marc.johnson@econlitco.org.

Customized In-Service Training

In addition to Economic Literacy Colorado's open enrollment programs, Economic Literacy Colorado is eager to work with individual school districts to provide teacher in-service trainings. We’ll do our best to work with you to create a workshop in economics and/or personal finance that fits your needs and is convenient. Please contact Marc Johnson, Education Program Director, at 303-752-2323 or marc.johnson@econlitco.org.
