Financial Literacy

The volatile economic climate we live in coupled with the growing costs of attaining a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree, today, make it imperative for students to be savvy in managing their money and their expenses along the way. This is especially important for students, who are first-generation, low-income students. It is a strategic initiative of our project to improve the Financial IQ of all program participants by providing a two-tiered Financial LiJose and Hortenciateracy Education Component. In keeping with this grant goal and in an effort to make relevant resources accessible to Program students.

We will use many of these tools and others to educate and equip our students to manage their expenses, their debt and their credit more effectively and to help them develop an individual plan to meet their educational costs and the financial  challenges of living.
