We are getting good reviews by workshop attendees, such as:

“This class should have been longer than 2”. (hours) and  “Instructor was very clear and detailed on the workshop. I learned a lot of useful information.”

Financial Literacy is the education and understanding of various financial areas, including topics related to managing personal finance, money and investing.

This topic focuses on the ability to manage personal finance matters in an efficient manner, and it includes the knowledge of making appropriate decisions about personal finance such as investing, insurance, real estate, paying for college, budgeting, retirement and tax planning. Also, understanding credit, credit reports, and your credit score.

Breaking Down Financial Literacy:

Financial literacy involves the proficiency of financial principles and concepts, such as financial planning, compound interest, managing debt, profitable savings techniques and the time value of money.  The lack of financial literacy may lead to making poor financial choices that can have negative consequences on the financial well-being of an individual.
