The MAX Approach
An online curriculum is necessary to provide learning opportunities on-the-go and in short, manageable segments. But researchers indicate, and the responses from the MAX pilot program confirm, that meaningful knowledge gain and behavior change are more likely to occur when learning is supported through multiple channels and with varied touchpoints. For this reason, MAX includes:
The online personal finance curriculum and resource center
This simple profile environment (name, email address, school and class year) allows students to personalize their experience and track their progress while keeping profile creation time and personal details to a minimum. MAX Online is fully mobile; built with smart-phone and laptop/tablet functionality.
MAX In-Person Workshops
Fall and Spring workshops highlight topics covered in the Fall/Spring online learning paths. MAX Coaches work with school administrators to select the best opportunities on campus for these workshops, even customizing multiple sessions to address different student demographic needs.
These high-energy webinars and podcasts focus on single topics (foundational, special interest and hot topic tracks). MAX Talks appear on the calendar and in MAX paths online for easy sign-up and viewing.
This monthly newsletter reinforces MAX content and encourages relevant and timely actions toward specific
personal financial goals. Plus, it reminds students of their incentive opportunities as well! For convenience, students
can also view newsletter content in the MAX Online environment.
Access one-on-one financial coaching with our AFC®-accredited MAX Coaches. Students may reserve times for virtual coaching sessions via MAX Online or take advantage of MAX Coaching opportunities offered
