Our goal is to help you help you make more informed choices about your finances while taking responsibility for making changes to improve your present and long-term financial well-being.

What Financial Literacy program participants have to say…

“I have never met such helpful people! Now I know who to go to when I need to talk to someone or when I need financial assistance.”

“I thought it was an excellent program and it really helped me to learn important details about financing for college students.”    

“I went in knowing next to nothing about my own finances, and walked out knowing a lot more. So yes, it helped a lot and was great!”
