Project Description

Community Financial Education Program:

Teaches the basics of personal finance and helps traditionally under served individuals develop habits and attitudes about money that will influence them for the rest of their lives. In this sense, the program is based on the philosophy that learning about money is as important as earning it—and that effective money management results from a disciplined behavior. Additionally, the program instills positive new attitudes and behaviors into traditionally low-income individuals and puts them on a path to take control of their financial life by getting out of debt, developing their net worth, and accumulating wealth. It also encourages savings, instills prudent money management, introduces investment vehicles, and promotes good work ethics
