Financial Literacy

Our Financial literacy course is an 8 week series on budgets, savings, investing, needs vs. wants, debt, and financial safety.  Course objectives are to teach basic financial literacy skills individuals use in day-to-day life, rather than complex topics such as stock market investing. This is a great course for young adults, and anyone wanting to get better control of their finances.
