A partnership for real-world skill building

EVERFI + Pear Deck

The educational journey includes so much more than traditional academic subjects. When young people learn about real-world skills in school, they’re equipped with the tools they need to navigate life’s daily challenges, such as financial literacy and career readiness.To help educators support K-12 students in developing life skills, we’ve partnered with EVERFI on a capsule collection of free, real-world lessons powered by Pear Deck. Get to know EVERFI’s story in this interview with K-12 Content Lead Alyssa Lyons.
